Marriage Application

You may apply for a Marriage License at any County Recorder in Iowa as long as the ceremony is to be performed in Iowa. Marriage Applications are accepted in Scott County between the hours of 8:00 A.M. and 4:00 P.M. For questions call (563) 326-8650.

To apply for a Marriage License:

  • The marriage applicants and one witness (all must be 18 years or older) must appear in person,
  • All three must present photo identification (drivers license or state ID).
  • $35.00 fee includes a certified copy of the Marriage Certificate.

In Scott County, the Marriage License is issued at the time of application. However, there is a four (4) day waiting period before the actual marriage may occur.

Once the Certificate of Marriage has been returned to the Recorder's office and placed on record, a certified copy will be mailed to the newlyweds.
