Need a marriage license in Harris County during the pandemic? Here is what you need to know.
HOUSTON – Harris County is going to be issuing marriage licenses again, but the process is going to be a little different thanks to the coronavirus pandemic. The Harris County Clerk will begin issuing licenses on May 18 by appointment only. Marriage licenses are only being issued at Harris County Civil Courthouse in downtown at 201 Caroline Street. You will be allowed to enter once you go through a health screening. Refusal to participate in the health screening will prevent entrance to the building, according to the Harris County Clerk’s office.
