To all couples wishing to be married at the St. Clair County Courthouse


      Effective January 2, 2019, marriages will be performed at the St. Clair County courthouse every Monday through Friday at 1:15 p.m. To get  married, you will need a valid marriage license and $10.00 (exact change) for the marriage fee. Please bring the license and the fee to the Law Library conference room on the first floor at 1:15 p.m., and the clerk will complete the paperwork for you. Also the court clerk requests that couples bring two (2) witnesses of their own, age 18 years or older.

     We will attempt to perform the weddings in the order in which couples arrive. If you arrive after 1:15 p.m., you may not be able to be married that day due to the judges’ trials and availability, but definitely no marriages may be performed after 2:00 p.m.

       It is the position of judges performing weddings that the marriage contract is a serious commitment.  Dress and attitude appropriate to such commitment are required. A judge may refuse to conduct the ceremony if both parties do not exhibit such commitment.


 We try to make every wedding special, so you may have to wait a little while, depending upon how many weddings we have that day.  Please be patient!
