Is that is her home, and that is where she resides normally, then yes, she would be a resident there and could get a marriage license issued by the clerks in the county where she lives so the marriage could occur there.

From the GA Court website:

What You Should Know:

  • When you arrive at the court, you'll need your driver's license, passport, or birth certificate. If your identifying documents are printed in a language other than English, you'll need to hire a notary to type a certified translation.
  • If you've been married before, you'll need to present to the court your divorce decree.
  • Marriage license fees vary by county, and some counties require payment in cash only. Check the feesat your county probate court.
  • If you don't want to pay the marriage license fee, you can earn a premarital education program certificate — a 6-hour class that reviews basic marriage lessons such as budgeting and conflict resolution.
