There are several ways to get a copy of your marriage certificate in San Francisco. You can request a copy in person at the Assessor’s office, by mail, over the phone or via the Internet.

To submit a request in the mail, you need to first download a copy of the Application for Certified Copy of a Marriage Certificate, complete the application and have it notarized. Then send the application and a check for $14.00 (for each copy requested) payable to the San Francisco Assessor-Recorder to 1 Dr. Carlton B.
