Hi,

Louisiana law requires that only one party (bride or groom) be present to obtain a marriage license. HOWEVER, the person who applies for the license MUST possess all of the information necessary for both parties. Usually a 3 day waiting period is required, but it may be waived at the Judge's office.

In Calcasieu Parish, marriage Licenses are processed in the Criminal Records Department of the Clerk of the Court. For further information you can contact the Criminal Records Department(NNN) NNN-NNNNext 133.

However, below please find a link to the information necessary for obtaining a marriage license in Cal There is also a link to an on-line application.

Please be advised that a marriage license may be obtained in any parish but the parties must be married in Louisiana. Marriage Licenses are good for 30 days.

I hope you find this information useful.
