Customer reply replied 4 months ago
you already answer my question as court house but couldnt find necessary doc. etc

Photo id is all you need here, your passport would do.

when I go to ***** of the Register of Wills and get y marriage license. Is that mean we married already? I am asking the step, after when we get the marriage license already

So you get the license, then you can have judge marry you there at courthouse or minister elsewhere.Just take the license with you wherever you want to be married and they sign it and you file it.License clerk can schedule you for a judge to marry .

1) We cannot do it in same days because the license is not valid first 3 days?
2) Do we need something else different then our marriage license and IDs?
3) Can we marry at any court in PA? Is appointment necessary?

1) We cannot do it in same days because the license is not valid first 3 days? Thats correct you would schedule it when yo get license.
2) Do we need something else different then our marriage license and IDs?

No just some cash to pay for license.

3) Can we marry at any court in PA? Is appointment necessary?
