Marriage to a Michigander

This page describes how to marry in Michigan and how to sponsor your Michigander 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 and our visitor visa page.

 

Processing Time

If you file a Canadian sponsorship application for your American spouse or partner, this application takes an average of 12 months (as of summer 2017). If you are sponsoring your American spouse “inland” (spouse is in Canada), the process may take longer.

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

 

Michigan's Marriage Basic Requirements

In Michigan, just like all other US States, you need to apply for a marriage license and register your marriage with the county authorities. In Michigan, you apply for your marriage license at the office of the County Clerk.

The legal age to marry in Michigan is 18 years of age.

Unlike most States the marriage license fee in Michigan is set regardless of county. The marriage license fee in Michigan is US$20 for residents and US$30 for non-residents. Most County Clerks prefer cash but call ahead to confirm.

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 county clerk’s office. Your Michigander spouse needs to present their passport, birth certificate and proof of single status.

In Michigan, there is a 3 day waiting period for the marriage license. You must marry within 33 days of the issuance of the license.

Documents required from the Canadian Spouse

  • Statement in Lieu of Certificate of Non-Impediment to Marriage Abroad
  • Original valid Canadian passport
  • Original birth certificate
  • Social Insurance Number (SIN)
  • Original death certificate of deceased spouse if widowed

Documents required form the Michigander Spouse

  • Original valid driver’s license
