Frequently Asked Question

What do I need to perform a wedding?
Last Updated 4 years ago

Most states will require that you register with the county clerk or the local agency that records marriages in the county before you can perform or solemnize a ceremony.

Since every county has different requirements for the minister registration, many states will require that you have your Ordination Credential and Letter of Good Standing as proof of your ordination with our ministry.

In most cases these will suffice for registration needs. There are a few states that require specialized Letters of Good Standing for ministerial registration; these states include: Hawaii, New York, West Virginia, and Nevada.

If you plan to perform a wedding in Clark, Douglas, Elko, Washoe or other Nevada county, you may be required to present the Affidavit of Authority to Solemnize Marriages. Clark County also requires you to have the Letter of Good Standing for Las Vegas.
