Marriage License Process

Tie the Knot Puerto Rico wants to offer a clear and smooth process which leads you to celebrate your BIG day.


As part of our commitment, we want you to understand the process with the information updated as of 2023.

Civil Code change since 2020

It is important for you to know that since 2020 with the implementation of the new Civil Code of Puerto Rico, the process to get married in Puerto Rico has changed. Now, the marriage license process required to get legally married in Puerto Rico is uniform and it applies to residents and non-residents of Puerto Rico. That being said, everybody that wants to get married in Puerto Rico has to follow the same requirements as a local does. As part of Tie the Knot Puerto Rico services, we will assist you along the process.

1. Couple’s original birth certificates

2. Couple’s drivers’ licenses

3. Divorce decrees (if you have been previously married) or Death certificate in cause of widowhood

4. If there is a legal name change, provide the evidence
