As long as you have a Letter of Good Standing from an organization licensed in the State of Missouri, you are good to go. We do not need to see any credentials from you. The couple will come in and get their license. They will hand it to you. Never perform a marriage ceremony for anyone that does not already have the license in hand or if the issue date is more than 30 days.
Once the marriage has been performed, it will be your responsibility to complete the bottom portion of the license and file it with the issuing Recorder’s office within 15 days of the ceremony. This office always provides a return envelope, but the couple will not always pass it on to you. If that is the case, our mailing address is Recorder of Deeds, 729 Maple Street, Hillsboro MO 63050.
