On Tuesday, May 15, Lake County began using the INcite Marriage License application. By Friday at noon, the busy office had issued 50 marriage licenses and recorded 12 marriage ceremonies!
On June 4, LaGrange County became the 80th county to use INcite for marriage licenses. Staff filled the last page of their traditional marriage license record book in the morning and smoothly transitioned to the INcite computer program later in the day. Clerks who use INcite no longer need to mail hard copy records of marriage to the Indiana State Department of Health for processing.
Lake and LaGrange Counties both use the Online Marriage License Application (OMLA) at http://courts.in.gov/marriage, which permits couples to begin their marriage license application online before arriving at their clerk’s counter. This saves couples and Clerk staff time when completing the application in person. To date, more than 8,900 applications initiated online have been completed and issued by the 69 counties that use the OMLA.
Marshall County plans to begin using the INcite Marriage License application on July 1.
