Cook County Offers Wallet-Sized Marriage Licenses

Posted by wlpo on January 11, 2013

CHICAGO (AP) – Cook County couples can now carry proof of their marriages or civil unions virtually anywhere. Cook County Clerk David Orr’s office is offering wallet-sized certificates for the same $15 fee of a standard document.

Orr says the pocket-sized cards have been popular among couples since they became available in recent weeks. He says the smaller certificates are more convenient than standard ones because they fit anywhere a credit card or driver’s license does.

The set of two card-sized marriage or civil union certificates includes names, license number, the clerk’s signature and the county’s seal.
