Nevada State Marriage Law & Information

Most counties in Nevada will require your official credentials to register


Nevada Marriage Law

PLEASE NOTE: The county clerk in Las Vegas requires this Letter of Good Standing and Affidavit of Authority to Solemnize Marriages to register as a Wedding Officiant. ***If you are not a resident of California you may encounter difficulties when registering to perform weddings in Nevada. Your ordination is still valid in the state to perform ministerial duties, however your may be restricted on the ability to solemnize weddings. We are working with the Secretary of State to resolve this, however due to the complexities of the Nevada State Code, we are unable to provide a time line for this matter.
