Eloping in Virginia - How To

Both bride and groom must be over 18 and apply in person for a marriage license at any clerk of court office. Bring photo ID. The license, valid only in Virginia for 60 days, costs $30 to $50 (cash).

No residency requirements, no blood tests, no waiting period, no statutory waiting period after a divorce, and no witnesses to the marriage ceremony are necessary. Wherever you are eloping in Virginia, check in case proof of age or documented termination of a previous marriage is required.
