In Texas, the cost for a state marriage license is $81.00. An informal marriage license can be requested by selecting the appropriate boxes on the form. The other steps required are paying the license fee, signing the license and taking the oath in the presence of the clerk.
Anyone who wishes to be wed formally by a justice of the peace in Texas should contact the clerk of the court in the appropriate jurisdiction. The clerk of the court usually maintains a listing of judges who make themselves available to perform wedding ceremonies for the public. The judge may charge for his time in addition to the marriage license fee.
