In order to be legally married, you'll need to get a marriage license in Maui! While we can answer any questions you have about this process, the government will require you to get the license yourself, as opposed to us getting it for you. Here’s a step by step process:
Step One: Go to the following website to fill out the Marriage License Application. Please note that your online application will be available for the issuance of a marriage or civil union license by an agent in the State of Hawaii up to one year from the application date. After a year, your application will be removed from the system. There will be no refunds for unused applications.
Step Two: Set an appointment with a Hawaii State Marriage License Agent in person before the ceremony. We suggest calling to make this appointment 30-60 days before your ceremony to get your preferred date and time. This is a very short meeting prior to the marriage ceremony where he couple will review the application, show ID, and sign the worksheet in the presence of the state agent. The agents are usually available for appointment Monday-Friday 9am-5pm, you may request a Saturday appointment (holidays excluded). There is a list of agents on the website, but here’s a list as well.

Step Three: After the wedding ceremony, the couple will sign the Marriage Certificate with the officiant.The officiant is then responsible for the completion of the performer section in the electronic marriage registration system after the ceremony to make sure everything gets sent into the state. In 3-5 days a temporary printable license will be available and the permanent license will be mailed to your address in 10-14 days.
The cost to obtain a marriage or civil union license is $65.00 ($60 application fee + $5 portal fee). All fees are non-refundable.
