Don't know if anyone has recently; historically, marrying in LA county on a K-1 has been advised against because they're notoriously slow at providing your marriage certificate (which you need to file AOS).

 

However, since you probably can't use the normal-times workaround for this (going to a neighboring county -- usually Orange, because they have the lowest fees and some nice civil wedding venues -- doesn't work because I think most counties are doing civil weddings for residents only, and Nevada has a higher positive test rate than California over the last 7 days, so taking a road trip to Vegas might not be advisable) I guess you'll just have to see.

Thanks @DaveAndAnastasia we have submitted online applications in both LA and Orange County, LA has available appointment by end of August while orange has given us the 3 August, we will see how it goes with Orange if they still close we will prefer the Nevada. because I am worried for my 90 days time period. Most important is to get married within 90 day.

Kern County is relatively quick. Mailed the form Tuesday and we had it in hand yesterday. They're quite helpful so you could call and ask if non residents can get one. I'm pretty sure you just have to be a resident of California
