Please Note:

Weddings at the Courthouse are conducted by Kenosha County Judges and Court Commissioners on weekdays at assigned times. Scheduling of weddings is handled through the office of the Clerk of Circuit Court, by calling 262-653-2465. If your call is not answered, leave a voicemail message, and ordinarily it will be returned within 24 hours. Weddings need to be scheduled prior to applying for the marriage license. Please provide the County Clerk’s Office the name of the judge performing the wedding and the day it is scheduled.
