MARRIAGE LICENSES
 
OBTAINING YOUR MARRIAGE LICENSE
 
Once the intentions have been filed and the bride and groom have signed the marriage license, the marriage license may be issued to the bride and groom.  The license must be used within 90 days from the date the intentions were filed.   The cost of obtaining a marriage license is $40.
 
HOW TO FILE INTENTIONS:
 
The first step in filing a marriage license is to have the marriage intentions recorded in writing.  Both parties must sign the intentions, stating they are free to marry.
 
You must be 18 years of age to marry without parental consent.  If you have been married before and are divorced or widowed, a certified copy of documentation showing how the last marriage ended is required. 
 
You only need to file in the town that you live.   If you live in separate towns, you only need to file one copy.  
 
NO WAITING PERIOD!
 
Effective July 25, 2002, there is no waiting period for a license.  Once you have filed your intentions, you will be issued a license immediately.
 
COPIES
 
Copies of your marriage certificate is only available from the municipal clerk(s) who issued your license.  However, copies may also be obtained from the Office of Vital Records.  A $15.00 fee does apply for a certified copy, $6.00 for any additional copies purchased at the same time.
