I need a marriage license in Lucas county, OH but, my fiancée is currently incarcerated

Asked over 1 year ago - Toledo, OH

We're not being able to get the license ourselves because he cannot be present to sign for the license. They told me I need to get a lawyer who can get the signature at the prison and then bring it back to the courthouse so we get the marriage license. My question. Is there anyone who can help me out getting the license? Or is his mom allowed to sign for him because she has power of attorney? Any answer is greatly appriciated.
