* Pima County Marraige License While planning your wedding in Arizona, you will need to obtain a marriage license. Marriage licenses have been delegated by The Superior Court of the State of Arizona, to be issued by each and every county. A wedding license issued by any AZ County is valid as a license for marriage in any AZ County (for instance, you can use a Maricopa County Marriage License in Pima County, etc.). Once purchased, the marriage license must be used within one year.In Pima County, the license is a two-piece marriage cert ificate. The top part is a family heirloom, suitable for framing. The bottom part of the certificate is a stub that will be recorded with all the public records in the county from which it was purchased. The recorded license stub becomes the subject of “certified copies.”
