WE SIGN. YOU'RE MARRIED. THAT'S IT.
Marriage License signing is a marriage option for couples who want to get legally married prior to their actual ceremony or for couples who want a family member or friend to officiate their wedding ceremony without that person petitioning a Virginia circuit court to get appointed for a single ceremony. This is often the case for couples that want to have a ceremony at a later date, in another state, another country, or on a cruise. It eliminates red tape and simplifies the stress of dealing with unfamiliar laws and requirements. The reasons are as varied as the couples we have legally married.
Sometimes they have been together for many years, have an established life as a couple, and don’t see a traditional wedding experience as desirable. (Virginia does not recognize common lawn marriage.) I’ve performed marriage license signings for couples where one person has lost a job or is changing jobs and needs to be covered on the other person’s health insurance. I’ve worked with couples who are moving for a job opportunity, but the employer will only cover moving costs for both of them if they are married. Yet other couples seek a quick marriage due to pending military service.
Most often couples get their marriage license at a local Virginia Clerk of Circuit Office (typically located inside the Courthouse) and arrange for Marriage Commissioner David or Donna Norford to meet for an immediate license signing while they are there! For those couples we offer fixed price options. Simple, easy, affordable.
