A marriage license may be obtained from the Town Clerk's office. The Law states:

  • * Residents of the State intending to be married shall record a notice of their intentions in the office of the Clerk of the municipality in which at least one of them resides.
  • * If both parties reside outside Maine, they must file their intentions in any municipal office. Once the license is issued, the parties may marry anywhere within the State of Maine. (Note: It is recommended to file your intentions and obtain a license in the City or Town where you are to be married. This will ease the burden of obtaining certified copies of the marriage.)
  • * Once intentions have been properly filed, a marriage license may be issued immediately. There is no waiting period. This License is valid for 90 days.
  • * For persons previously married, a certified copy of the most recent divorce decree or death certificate of the most recent former spouse will be needed at the time of the application.
  • * If under the age of 18, parents of the minor must be present to sign the Marriage Certificate.
  • * The license fee is $40.00

Both parties MUST be present. Please bring photo identification when filing your marriage intentions.
