Chandler to stop offering marriage licenses

Posted: Updated:

CHANDLER -- If you're thinking of getting married in Chandler next year, you'll have to go elsewhere to get a marriage license.

The city will soon be putting a halt on offering marriage licenses.

Chandler says it's all a budget issue.

The city has offered the service for more than a decade, but a city spokesperson says it costs more to provide the service than the city collects.

A marriage license costs $72, but the city only receives $1.50 of that fee.

Maricopa County will continue offering marriage licenses at other locations throughout the Valley.
