Marriage to a Ohioan

This page describes how to marry in Ohioan and how to sponsor your Ohioan spouse for permanent residence in Canada.

If you want to bring your American spouse or partner to live in Canada, you must then file a sponsorship application for them to become a permanent resident. For more information, please see our family sponsorship page.

 

Processing Time

If you file a Canadian sponsorship application for your American spouse or partner, this application takes an average of 15 months (as of June 2016). If you are sponsoring your American spouse “inland,” the process will take over two years.

Please see our pages on family sponsorship for more information on the processing times of these applications.

 

Ohio's Marriage Basic Requirements

In Ohio, as with all US States, you need to apply for a marriage license and register your marriage with the local (county) authorities. The cost varies, and other requirements may as well.

The legal age to marry in Ohio is 16, but anyone between the ages of 16 and 18 intending to marry will need to provide proof of parental consent and marriage counselling.

The marriage license fee depends on the county, so make sure you contact them before showing up.

You will need to make sure you have the right documents for the county you are marrying in. Take your passport and all of the documents you brought with you from Canada with you to the Probate Court. Your Ohioan spouse needs to present their passport, birth certificate and proof of single status.

There is no waiting period for the marriage license, it will be valid the moment it’s issued.

Once the license is issued, you will have 60 days to marry.

Unlike other states, you need to apply for the marriage license in the county the Ohioan resident lives in.

 

Documents required from the Canadian Spouse

  • Statement in Lieu of Certificate of Non-Impediment to Marriage Abroad
  • Original valid Canadian passport
  • Original birth certificate
  • Original death certificate of deceased spouse if widowed
  • Original divorce decree or annulment papers if divorced

 

Documents required form the American Spouse

  • Original valid driver’s license
  • Original birth certificate
  • Original death certificate of deceased spouse if widowed
  • Original divorce decree or annulment papers if divorced
  • Social Security Number

Once you have your marriage license, you have 60 days to have the marriage ceremony.

If one or both of you are under 18, you are required to provide both written consent from a parent and a letter from your pastor or marriage counselor attesting that you have had counselling.

 

Family Members

Having children does not affect the application for a Marriage License in Ohio.
