Travis County Clerk's Office is Issuing Marriage Licenses to Same Gender Couples


Photo: Marriage License.

On June 26, 2015, the US Supreme Court issued its ruling on Marriage Equality cases which renders Texas laws limiting marriage to one man and one woman unconstitutionally invalid. The Court said in its opinion that, “The Constitution promises liberty to all within its reach, a liberty that includes certain specific rights that allow persons, within a lawful realm, to define and express their identity.”

After reviewing the ruling with the Travis County Attorney's office, the County Clerk Dana DeBeauvoir determined that her office was legally permitted to issue marriage licenses to eligible same gender couples, and did so beginning at 10:30 AM on June 26th.

Issuance of marriage licenses to continue:

  • Location: 5501 Airport Blvd, Austin Texas 78751

Hours for marriage licenses to be issued:

  • We are open 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday, except legal holidays.
