Now that we've received your aGREEMENT...
How exciting! Step One is complete and now it’s time for the next phase where we will create your slot for the notary service. The process is all online and takes mere minutes.
We require $300 of the agreement to be paid up-front. You can pay securely via Paypal with a Paypal account, debit or credit card.
- You and your Fiance will receive an email to the addresses you associated with the agreement.
- Once your deposit is received we will create your notary appointment and forward the secure wedding application.
- Once the Notary and Application is completed we’ll require the remaining fees.
If you have any questions prior to meeting with one of our knowledgeable online marriage app reps please visit our wedding proxy FAQ page.
Wedding Proxy is located in the State of Montana and insofar as paperwork, we keep Clerk of Court hours: 8am – 4pm Mountain time. But, we can be reached 24/7 for questions (please read FAQ in Step 2 for more details).
Step 2: You Will Be Assigned a U.S. Notary
You can use the notary service whenever you're ready. They are available 24 hours per day. Simply click the link we forward to you and a notary will begin a video call.
The use of a Notary is to complete the Power of Attorney form for your wedding proxy. Without it, we won't be able to sign the wedding application for you.
- Your phone with the camera on
- Your current identification (United States drivers license or State I.D.)
Military ID cannot be used by U.S. notaries. This is due to the fact that military ID cards do not have the individuals address or birth-date alongside the image. The methods used to determine true identity are stringent and vary from state to state.
Unfortunately, our notaries are based in the U.S. and can only notarize forms for U.S. citizens. If your fiance is not a Unite States citizen or Permanent Resident they would need to use a notary where they are currently located.
If you don't currently have state issued ID (a drivers license or state ID), you will need to use the notary service at the JAG office or your bank.
If you will be using your own notary, please let us know and we will forward you the form necessary to complete your marriage certificate.
Step 3: Complete the Wedding Application
A link to your Wedding Application will be in the primary email you receive from our office once your deposit is complete.
Once the notary service is complete, and you’ve completed the application form – we’ll hand-deliver to our Clerk of Courts here in Fergus County, Montana.
We try to be as detailed as possible, but if the Clerk of Courts finds an issue we will reach out to you as fast as possible for any clarification.
This process takes from 1 to 3 hours and your marriage license will be signed, stamped and legal.
When Do We Get The Marriage Certificate?
Once your wedding certificate is stamped and signed by the court clerk, we will mail it to the address you’ve chosen on your Montana Marriage Application Form, that very day.
You should receive your marriage certificate within 3 – 9 days (depending on location/country). Unless you’ve asked to have the marriage certificate sent overnight delivery, which can be an option.
