Eloping in Alaska: FYI

The regulations in Alaska make the state a popular choice for eloping. A mailed-in or faxed application is acceptable if witnessed by a notary public, and an application is available at the Bureau of Vital Statistics (www.vitalrecords.alaska.gov); otherwise, apply at the county clerk’s office where you plan to marry. There is a three-business-day waiting period after you apply, but you can marry the day you receive the license.

You must be 18, need not be residents of Alaska, and blood tests are not required. Cousins can marry, but no proxy, common-law, or same-sex weddings are permitted. Bring picture ID (e.g., driver’s license) and you may need birth certificates. If previously married, you must provide the date of divorce or death, and if the event took place within the last 60 days, bring a certified copy of the divorce decree or death certificate. The license is valid for 90 days and the fee is $40-$50.

A religious or judicial officiate can perform the ceremony, or anyone over the age of 18 (who needn’t be a resident of Alaska) can do the job if a commission appointment from an Alaskan court is obtained. Find details at: Alaska Court System: Marriage Commissioner Information.
