Changes com­ing in Alabama mar­riage li­censes

Cherokee County Herald - - FRONT PAGE -

The Alabama Leg­is­la­ture dur­ing the 2015 gen­eral ses­sion made sig­nif­i­cant changes to the amount and dis­tri­bu­tion of fees charged for a mar­riage li­cense in Alabama. HB320 (now known as Alabama Act 2015-493*) man­dates an in­crease of $30 to the cur­rent charge for a mar­riage li­cense in ev­ery county in the state. The new law also cre­ates the Do­mes­tic Vi­o­lence Trust Fund that will col­lect the new charges for use in as­sist­ing vic­tims of do­mes­tic vi­o­lence.

As a re­sult of the changes ex­plained above be­gin­ning Jan. 1, 2016, a mar­riage li­cense and as­so­ci­ated doc­u­ments in Chero­kee County will cost $81.

*The spe­cific Code of Alabama sec­tion that was changed that in­cluded the fee in­crease is Ala. Code 30-6-11.
