Default Obtaining a Marriage License!

Hello Everyone!
Does anyone know what county I can get a marriage license in, in Kentucky, where he doesn't have to be present?! I know there are a lot of other posts about this, but most of them were old, and the info wasn't correct anymore! I live in Jefferson County and I know they won't give me one because I spoke to the clerk this morning!
Thanks so much in advance!!

Have you tried the county where he is incarcerated?

I do know, from reading their newspaper, that Boyle County allows them once or twice a year for ceremonies at Northpoint. Or at least they did a few years ago. Since you have to get approval from the warden and or chaplain first, why not ask the chaplain?

There is a specific form for obtaining a marriage license in Kentucky. The form can be picked at at your local County Clerk's Office (supposedly). I had a heck of a time getting the clerk to understand that it is THEIR form....she finally found it. I've attached it in the following thread:

Getting Married in a Kentucky Prison

Apparently the County Clerk's do have access to the form, but are not bound to accept it. According to the Clerk's "manual" it is at their discretion. Good Luck and Congratulations!!
