Marriage Certificates

Marriage Licenses must be obtained in a town where at least one (1) of the applicants reside. If neither applicant is a resident of Maine, a license may be obtained from any town office.

Requirements: There are a few steps that must be followed prior to the Clerk issuing a license.

  • Intentions of Marriage must be filled out by each applicant
  • Original signatures MUST be on the marriage license
  • If applicable, the Clerk must see the original divorce decree (with raised seal) or a certified copy of a death certificate.

Filing Fees: Prior to the Clerk issuing the license, a filing fee of $40 must be collected.

  • A marriage license is valid for 90 days after being issued. The officiant (person performing ceremony) has 7 business days to file the license with the Clerk who issued the license.
  • To obtain a certified copy, an authorization to release a vital record needs to be filled out and notarized.
  • Certified copies are $15 for the first copy and $6 each additional copy if requested the same day.
  • For questions you may call the Clerk @ 667-5912
