A marriage license may be obtained from the Town Clerk by town residents. It takes about 30 minutes to process, so please arrive at least 30 minutes before the office closes.
The cost is $40 per couple.
Both individuals must come to the Town Office to sign the marriage license, and if needed they can come at different times.
If married previously, applicants must present a certified copy of their divorce decree, a death certificate or annulment certificate.
Marriage Licenses are valid for 90 days after date of issue.
Non-residents who desire to be married in the State of Maine may apply for a license in any town in Maine, however it is strongly suggested that they apply in the town where they will be married. The reason is that in 20 years if they need or want a copy of their marriage license, they will likely remember where they were married and may not remember where they applied for a license.
To request a copy of a Marriage License fill out a Request Form, the following information is needed:
The fee for one certified copy is $15.00. The fee for additional certified copies of the same record is $6.00 each. Send self-addressed stamped envelope with your payment.
