140 | TODAY'S BRIDE 0-3 MONTHS UNTIL "I DO" MarriageLicenseBasics You should apply for your marriage license in the county you live in, not the county in which you’ll be getting married. Because some counties have a waiting period or slow turn-around, you should apply a few weeks early. Not too early, though; if a li- cense is not used within 60 days, it will expire. Once both of you have signed your license, your Officiant will sign as a witness and send it to the Marriage License Bureau to be authorized. You should request at least three certified copies (raised seal) to change your name. To apply for your license, you and your fiancé will need:  Birth Certificate  Photo ID Proof of Citizenship/Residency  Death Certificate if widowed  Divorce Decree if divorced  Payment for fees – accepted form of payments vary from county to county LMAC Photography ASHTABULA COUNTY • 440-576-3453 25 W.
