Wedding chapels in Nevada can now issue marriage licenses thanks to surety bonds. A new bill titled SB 381 allows counties with less than a 100,000 populace to authorize commercial wedding chapels to issue marriage licenses. In order for the chapel to be eligible, it must be in business for five years or more, register with the county clerk, and must acquire a $50,000 performance surety bond. The bond guarantees the safekeeping of personal information of those applying for the marriage license.
