Welcome to the Santa Cruz County Clerk's Website

Welcome! It is an honor to serve as your elected County Clerk. Visit our Clerk Services Division when you need a marriage license, fictitious business name, passport, notary oath, or appointment as a deputy commissioner of marriage for a day, as well as various other services for unlawful detainer assistants, legal document assistants, process servers and professional photocopiers. We also offer wedding ceremony services daily. For our south county residents, we provide Clerk Services at the Watsonville City Clerk’s Office, located in the Watsonville Civic Plaza, one Wednesday a month. For our busy travelers, especially those with families, we open for Saturday passport hours four times a year.

We are here to assist you and answer your questions. Our goal is ensure that you have a positive experience with our office. It is a pleasure to be a part of your life and to serve the people of Santa Cruz County.
