You must both be at least 18 years of age and present valid government issued identification that is not expired (ie; passport, drivers license, id card). If an interpreter is needed you should bring one with you. Neither the bride or groom can interpret for the other. Your marriage license must be used within 60 days or returned to our office. The license must be returned to our office within five days after the marriage occurs. It can be used anywhere in the state of Virginia and your Officiant must have been approved to perform licenses by any circuit court in Virginia.
