To my knowledge, Georgia stopped proxy marriages in 2015. In the beginning of that year, I was able to get Habersham to do it. by Sept, they had discontinued it. I waited too long and was not able to get my proxy marriage. But you may be able to find a county who still does it, the chances aren't likely, so please don't get your hopes up. Sorry its not what you want to hear, but it is accurate.

Following are guidelines for marriage:

1. The inmate contacts the chaplin for marriage info and procedures.
Diagnostic inmates are encouraged to wait untill they are permanently assigned to begin procedures.

2. The inmate can marry an person who is not currently incarcerated.

3. The inmate and intended spouse will assume all logistical and financial
responsiblities for the marriage.

4. The inmate will write the institutional chaplin and state his intention to
marry. The letter should include the following:

a.) Name, address and phone number of the intended spouse
b.) Name, address and phone number of the minister or Justice of the
Peace.
c.) Approximate desired date of marriage.

5. If inmate and intended spouse have never been married, then each person will submit a notarized letter stating that there are no legal restrictions, such as an unresolved previous marriage, common law or otherwise, that would prohibit the marriage.

6. If the inmate or intended spouse has been married, then a copy of the
divorce decree will be submitted.

7. The intended spouse will obtain a marriage application form, complete
the form and send it to the inmate for completion of his portion of the
form, including a notarized signature.

a.) In Georgia, a marriage license can be obtained as long as the parties
are residents of Georgia.
b.) If a county refuses to issue a marriage license, then seek out another
county. One of the counties that will issue a marriage license if one
intended spouse is in prison, is Fulton County, Atlanta, Georgia.

8. The inmate will contact the chaplin who will make copies of the completed
marriage application. One copy will be place in the inmate's institutional
file and one copy will be placed in the inmate's Central Office record.

9. The inmate will have the responsibility of returning the original application
form by mail to his intended spouse.

10. The intended spouse will send a copy of the marriage license to the
Director of Chaplaincy Services who will send a letter of authorization
and a copy of the marriage license to the Warden to forward to the
institutional chaplin. The intended spouse will bring the original marriage
license to the institution on the day of the marriage ceremony.

11. The chaplin will arrange date, time and coordinate marriage ceremony
with an approved minister or justice of the peace.

12. Marriage Ceremony:

a.) The Warden will designate a date, time and area in the institution
to be utilized for the marriage ceremony.
b.) With prior approval, no more than four (4) members of the immediate
families (2 from each family) may attend the ceremony. Other inmates
will be restricted from the marriage ceremony.
c.) The inmate will wear institutional clothing only. Wedding gowns,
special decorations, flowers and music will be prohibited.
d.) With prior approval and within institutional personal property SOP
limitations, wedding rings will be allowed to be brought in by the
intended spouse. It will be the responsiblitiy of the chaplin to notify
the record room concerning the ring being placed on the inmate's
personal property list.
e.) The institutional chaplin or approved authorized person performing
the marriage ceremony will complete and return the marriage license
to the proper authorities. A copy of the marriage license (blue copy)
for the inmate's spouse will be placed in the inmate's file and a copy
forwarded to the Director of Chaplaincy Services.


whew that was a lot of typing! (hope there wasn't too many typos! ) I don't think I've seen anything like this in here for GA, so I thought I'd post it in hopes that it might help someone out there. God bless and good luck!



I was wondering if the same goes for the county jail or the rsat program?

Unhappy Coffee County Correctional Marriage Help

I need to know how do i get my packet (marriage) But it seems Coffee County Correctional does things a little different than normal facility's they do not provide you with their own chaplain for you are to bring your own nor does 5 out of the 5 court houses I've called sign off on a marriage Lic. Unless the inmate is present,so with that being said I am so desperate to figure out something, the woman at Coffee County Court house said if the inmate could be transfered to them they would allow him to sign off and we would be good to go, well that isn't going to happen, I've called a lot of courthouses that were within means I reside in lithia springs, SO needless to say I am stuck without no resources, I've asked him to ask fellow inmates who have been married, but no one seems to know. I know it can be done, I am trying to remain positive, Can anyone help or lead me in the right direction, Him and I have been together for over 1 year, I've waited long enough to be his bride. Please any advice would be very helpfully. Thank you

Sorry I just now saw you asked this. I don't know how to work this site well yet. Is there a way to know if someone comments to your post?

Anyway... lol My fiance is well was at central state. He just had a stroke and won't be going back there so our wedding has been put on hold. He is going to have to go to a medical prison. I'm guessing Augusta.

I called the probate court in Bibb county and they and gave me a list of things I needed to bring. I can't find it but off the top of my head they told me I needed a certified copy of his birth certificate, copy of his social security card. copy of his prison ID, and I can't remember the formal name for this form but it is stating that he is never been married and has no legal obligation to any other woman or something like that.

Sorry for the delay in responding

The way I check for replies to multiple posts is to click on my username wherever it appears, then "show all statistics" and finally "find all posts by you". You will get a list of everything you have ever posted on PTO. Click on one, and when you are done with it, use your browsers back button to return to the list to check another one.
