How do I obtain a marriage license?

Learn how to get a marriage license:

  • If you are both residents of Maine, you must apply for a marriage license in the Clerk's office where you are a resident. If only one of the applicants is a resident of Maine, you must apply in the Maine town/city where the Maine resident lives. If both reside in Maine, but in separate towns/city, you can apply at either Clerk's office.
  • If you are both residents of another state besides Maine, you can apply for a marriage license in any town or city in Maine and have the ceremony in that location or any other location in Maine.
  • If either party was previously married, you must bring proof of the dissolution of the former marriage (i.e. certified copy of divorce decree or a death certificate).
  • A driver's license or government issued picture identification is required.
  • The fee is $40 and you may also pre-pay for certified copies (1st copy is $15 and additional copies ordered at the same time, are $6 each).
