STATEMENT FROM THE COVINGTON COUNTY PROBATE OFFICE ON CHANGES IN MARRIAGE LICENSE POLICY
JUNE 26, 2015
Effective immediately, the Covington County Probate Office marriage license division is closed. During this time, we will not be issuing any marriage licenses except to those couples who already have appointments to get married.
This action is necessitated by the recent ruling of the United States Supreme Court addressing same-sex marriage.
We are unable to say at this time when we will resume the issuance of marriage licenses from this office.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and want to assure the public we are working very hard to make a final decision on how we will operate in the future.
Probate Judge Ben Bowden
