Pursuant to Virginia Code §20-23, when a minister of any religious denomination produces before the circuit court of any county or city in the Commonwealth proof of his ordination and of his being in regular communion with the religious society of which he is a reputed member, or proof that he is commissioned to pastoral ministry or holds a local minister's license and is serving as a regularly appointed pastor in his denomination the clerk of such court at any time, may make an order authorizing such minister to celebrate the rites of matrimony in the Commonwealth.
Pursuant to Virginia Code §20-25, persons other than ministers may perform rites of marriage upon petition filed with the clerk and payment of applicable clerk's fees ($56.00). Any circuit court judge may issue an order authorizing one or more persons resident in the circuit in which the judge sits to celebrate the rites of marriage in the Commonwealth. Any person so authorized shall, before acting, enter into bond in the penalty of $500, with or without surety, as the court may direct.
The clerk's office does not have forms for this procedure. You must prepare your own petition to file.
