Marriage ceremonies may be performed by a judge or magistrate at any district court. Marriage ceremonies at the 63rd District Court are performed on site on Thursday afternoons, every half hour from 1:45 – 4:00pm. An appointment needs to be scheduled ahead of time; typically our calendar is filled about 2 months out.
To schedule a marriage appointment call (616) 632-7780. If the clerk is not available at the time of your call, you will need to leave a message with your name, phone number, and the reason for your call. She will call you back as soon as she is able.
