Marriage ceremonies at the 15th
District Court are performed by the Magistrate in Courtroom #1 on Fridays
by appointment only. It is best to contact the Court at least six weeks in advance.
To request an appointment, send an email to [email protected]. Please include within your email, your name and phone number as well as your reason for contacting Court ("to schedule a marriage ceremony").
Marriage ceremonies may only be performed if the parties possess a valid State of Michigan marriage license. You will also need to bring with you two witnesses and the $10 marriage fee.
To obtain information on marriage licenses and fees, please contact the
Washtenaw County Clerk's Office at 734-222-6720.
If the 15th
District Court Magistrate is not available, the Vital Records Division of the County Clerk's Office, upon request, will provide a list of judges, magistrates and mayors located within the Washtenaw County area who perform weddings.
