How do I obtain a certified marriage license?

A certified marriage license can be obtained either in person at the office or by mail request at:

Register of Wills
200 N River Street
Wilkes-Barre, PA 18711

There is a $25 fee made payable to the “Register of Wills” for a certified marriage license. Please provide the full name of the groom and the full name of the bride at the time applying for the license (include maiden name), as well as, the date of the marriage. If making a request by mail, include a self-addressed, stamped envelope for return of the certification. The fee applies as a search fee even if a marriage license is not found in Luzerne County
