Marriage Licenses

The County Clerk issues marriage licenses and Declaration of Informal Marriage licenses.
Recording of Marriage Records for the County of Freestone began in 1851. The fee for a marriage license is $81.00.  However, there is a way to get part of this fee waived.


The legislature passed HB 2685 last session which authorizes a statewide initiative to promote "Healthy Marriages". The healthy marriage initiative in Texas promotes free, skills-bases marriage education and provides couples with the tools they need to manage challenges inherent to relationships. Classes taught in various venues around the state include eight hours of training
focusing on communication skills, conflict resolution and the elements of a healthy marriage.

The couples who take the courses and are provided a certificate by the approved providers will have the added benefit of having $60.00 of the marriage license waived. The only cost to the couple who have the certification is $21.00 instead of the regular $81.00.  Those who do not take the course, will pay the regular $81.00 for a marriage license.
