Thank your for asking Just Answer,

 

You should be able to do this in Pennsylvania. The requirements for Pennsylvania are as follows:

The definition of Marriage in the Commonwealth of PA is as follows:
“Marriage,” A civil contract by which one man and one woman take each other for husband and wife.” 23(Pa C.S.A.1102)

Both applicants must appear together in person before the marriage license clerk.
A $60.00 cash fee is required when applying for the marriage license.

Both applicants must be 18 years of age or older. Anyone who is under the age of 18 must have their custodial parent accompany them to sign a permission form, and there is an additional $20.00 fee.

The marriage license will be issued at the time of application, but is not valid for three days after application. The marriage license is only valid for 60 days.

If you get your license as soon as you get in town then you should have the 3 days to way prior to your marriage. You have to be there to get the licensed issued so you will not be able to get it before. This is very typical for marriage license requirements in most states.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
