The Davidson County Clerk offers a variety of services to make living in Nashville enjoyable and convenient. Marriage licenses were first issued in 1780 when the office was first created. Passport services were added in September of 2008. And in March of 2011 the office began offering short form Tennessee birth certificates. These services are only offered at our main office located at 700 2nd Avenue South. In the future we hope to continue to add new services to our office that meet the needs of our Davidson County residents.
