Notice re: Same-Gender Marriage Licenses (Updated 29 June 2015):
The Office of the Recorder has always complied to the best of its ability with the laws governing marriage license applications in the State of Missouri. While we recognize that same-gender marriage has been a divisive issue, we respect the judicial process and the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Obergefell et.al vs. Hodges et. al. In accordance with Obergefell, and absent any petition for rehearing that may stay that decision, our office is now preparing to issue marriage licenses to same-gender applicants by having our software provider and forms printers align our systems and documents with the Supreme Court’s decision. We anticipate all necessary work to be done no later than 20 July 2015. In the interim, we will use existing programs and forms for issuing marriage licenses to all applicants. Thank you for your patience.
