Marriage Regulations for Eloping in Wisconsin

Laws on Eloping in Wisconsin: If you are planning a Wisconsin elopement, bride and groom should be 18 or over and both apply to a county clerk’s office with photo ID (e.g., driver’s license), certified birth certificates (if under age 30), and social security numbers. If nonresidents, apply in the county in which the ceremony is to take place.

No blood tests are required, but there is a six-day waiting period, and if previously married, bring copies of death certificates, or certified copies of divorce decrees that have been final for at least six months. The license costs $75–$100, valid for 30 days.
