Marriage Officiants

Please be advised that the Clinton County Clerk’s office is governed by the State of Michigan laws on the issuance of marriage licenses.

Determining Legality of Officiant

It is the responsibility of the couple being married to determine the legality of the officiant performing the ceremony. To ensure full compliance with the law, you may want to seek the guidance of an attorney in interpreting the law regarding “Persons authorized to solemnize marriages.”
