All credit card transactions will include a 4% surcharge. We will be able to issue a certified copy as soon as we receive the license from the officiant who performed the ceremony. The officiant has 5 days to return the license to our office per § 32.1-267(C).
  • By phone - Payment must be made over the phone by credit card only. Certified copies are $2.60 each including the 4% surcharge and copies will be mailed the same day unless requested after 4:30.  Copies can be requested at 540-564-3126 or 540-574-4353.
