These Documents in Simple Terms
There are two primary documents that ar available after your wedding. One everyone will need and one that you might need. Below we explain each document so you can determine which are right for you.

Certified Las Vegas Marriage Certificate

Important: Everybody will need this document!

After you are married, you will need this document to change your name and for every other major purpose. Simply put, this is the main document you need. It is required by the DMV, Social Security, INS (Immigration & Naturalization Service) adoption services.

Certified Las Vegas Marriage License

Important: You will only need this in certain cases!

The Certified Las Vegas Marriage License is required for people who’ve been married more than once and wish to change their name. It is also required for military purposes and INS (Immigration & Naturalization Service) and adoption services. The Certified Las Vegas Marriage License by itself will not serve as proof of your marriage. If you need this document, you will also need the above document, the Certified Las Vegas Marriage Certificate.

Apostille (Proof of Marriage for Foreign Citizens Only)

Important: This document is for foreign citizens only!

An Apostille and a Certified Las Vegas Marriage Certificate are generally accepted as proof of marriage by most countries. However, we recommend you check with your local officials to ensure the right documents are obtained for your marriage to be recognized in your country. A Certified Las Vegas Marriage certificate is required to facilitate the production of an Apostille. For that reason, one is included in the price and comes with your Apostille order.
