Fort Bend County Clerk Announces Keepsake Marriage Certificate

County Clerk Laura Richard is pleased to make available a new way to commemorate your memorable life event.  Just in time for Valentine’s Day or any special day of the year, the new “Certificate of Marriage” certifies that a couple’s marriage license is legally filed with the Fort Bend County Clerk’s office. “This makes a wonderful way to celebrate a significant anniversary, a gift to a special couple in your life or just to say ‘I love you,’” said County Clerk Laura Richard.

The original formal marriage license must be in the records of the Fort Bend County Clerk to qualify for this keepsake and is for souvenir purposes only. Those who need an official document can purchase a certified copy.

The keepsake certificate is a special way to honor a marriage and is suitable for framing.  The cost is $25 and can be obtained from any Fort Bend County Clerk location or by mail.
