According to the Dallas County Clerk’s website,
Effective March 1, 2011, Dallas County Clerk’s Office along with the JP-Courts Office will only waive the $60 state portion of the marriage license fee for couples who complete an approved premarital training course and present the Twogether in Texas Certificate of Completion to the county clerk. Local County fee of $11 will be charged for the purchase of the marriage license with the Twogether in Texas Certificate of Completion. (Local County fees will not be waived).
