Marriage License

Maine residents

An application must be completed and filed with the office of the clerk in the municipality in which at least one of you resides. A certified copy of a divorce decree or a death certificate is needed for those who have been previously married. The application can be found on the "Documents" section of the website. We encourage you to download the three (3) page form and fill out ahead of time. Both parties must sign the actual license in the Town Clerk's presence before it can be issued. Both residents will no longer be required to file Notice of their Intentions in separate municipalities.
