I've lurked a little and think i understand, but I'm not quite sure...
FI and I go into the probate office in our county (getting married in Fulton, but getting our license in Bulloch because tha'ts where we live).
We bring 2 forms of ID and cash. Then we fill out the license there.
We then keep the license. On the day of the wedding we sign it with our officiant and date it and then turn it back into the Bulloch office when we get back.
Then they'll mail me a marriage certificate for name changes.
Is this correct? If not, what's the step by step process? meh
