Marriage Licenses

Situations

  • If the female applicant lives in New Jersey, apply in the town where the female lives.
  • If the female does not live in New Jersey, but male applicant does, apply in town where male lives.
  • If both applicants live out of state but are getting married in New Jersey, apply in the town where the marriage ceremony will take place.

Requirements

The bride, the groom, and a witness (18 years of age or older) must come in person to fill in the application. A three-day waiting period will occur before a license can be picked up. All 3 need not return (someone else may pick up the license for the couple).

If previously married, you must show proof that you are no longer married.

A blood test is not required.
