Crow Wing County accepting e-marriage applications

Couples applying for a marriage license in Crow Wing County can now save time and simplify the process by completing the application form online, the county reports.

County auditor-treasurer Deborah Erickson announced that Crow Wing County is participating in the statewide registry that unites resources to streamline applications for marriage licenses.

"We're excited to be live with the eMarriage process," Erickson said in a news release. "This is another critical step in providing service enhancements that allow customers to have access to applying for a marriage license in a choice of time and format that is convenient to them and best fits their needs."

After completing the form online, couples will receive a confirmation email and must then appear in person at the auditor-treasurer's office to have their signatures witnessed, pay the license fee and complete the process. Once the fee is paid, there is a five-day waiting period before the license will be valid, but customers will only need to appear once to receive their license versus once to apply and once to get the license.

Paper applications will still be accepted at the auditor-treasurer's office from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Visit www.crowwing.us/577/Marriage to find the online application on the county's website. For additional information, call the office at 218-824-1045.

Since then, this service has been accelerated to include online marriage applications. The MOMS eMarriage process also includes the administration side of the application for county staff to complete the required documents from the application, creating efficiency and effectiveness of county staff and uniformity between counties.
