Marriage Over the Internet

In the age of internet and computer technologies, the demand for cyber marriages is increasing.  A lot of couples are finding one another over the internet and desire to solemnize their marriages in the same manner.  

However, marriage over the internet is not legally binding.  Proxy marriages are illegal in the State of California.  In order for a marriage to be legal, a couple has to have a marriage license, which is granted by legal institutions.  In Los Angeles County a few notary publics are authorized by the County Office of the Registrar/Recorder to assist with the issuance of marriage licenses.  

The same rule applies to weddings over the phone.  
Both parties must be present in the same place at the same time in front of the official.  
Identifications and other related documentation must be verified prior to license issuance.  Parties must sign their marriage license in the presence of public official.  

MARRIAGES CONDUCTED OVER THE PHONE OR OVER THE INTERNET ARE ILLEGAL AND MAY BE DECLARED INVALID BY THE STATE, LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES, OR OTHER PARTIES.  

Our notary publics are authorized to issue marriage licenses.   Solemnization of the marriage is also available with our non-denominated ministers.  Should you be interested in a religious ceremony, you may use your marriage license issued through us with the minister of your choice.  If you do not know any ministers, we will be delighted to refer you to our denominated colleagues.  

For ceremonies in prison or in the army, please Contact Us to discuss your particular situation and to make necessary arrangements.  Your privacy is guaranteed.  
If you have further questions, please Contact Us or refer to the Los Angeles Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk official website for more details.
