Marriage Licenses

The cost for all licenses is $28 (State fee is $25 and Local Fee is $3).  Application for these licenses must be made in the community where either applicant resides.  If both applicants live out of state, then they must apply in the municipality where the ceremony will take place.  When applying, the couple must bring their birth certificates, one other form of identification and, if applicable, divorce decree, death certificate for previous partner or termination of prior civil union or domestic partnership.  There is a 72 hour waiting period from the time of application to receipt of license.  Couples are advised to make application no later than one week prior to the wedding date.  At the time of application, the couple must be present and accompanied by a witness at least 18 years of age or older.
