On Wednesday, May 4th, the Allen County Clerk’s Office submitted the first marriage license using the new Online Marriage License Application! Allen County is one of four pilot counties for the new project, which went live last week. The other pilot counties are Hancock, Tippecanoe and Vanderburgh. Couples residing in any of the pilot counties can begin a marriage license online at http://courts.in.gov/marriage.
The Allen County couple initiated the application on their computer at home before arriving at the courthouse, and the Clerk’s staff completed the transaction at the counter. According to Clerk Lisa Borgmann, “The staff was very excited and said the process worked great!” In addition to being the first to use the new pilot application, this was the first license the Allen County Clerk’s Office issued electronically using INcite. Previously, marriage licenses were handwritten and processed only on paper.
Congratulations to Allen County for processing the first Online Marriage License Application, and to our pilot counties participating in this exciting project!
