How To Apply For A Marriage License

The Town Clerk’s Office will issue a Marriage License to individuals eighteen years of age and older who are to be married in Massachusetts.  Anyone under the age of eighteen must provide us with a court order waiving the age requirement. 

Applicants must appear together at the Town Clerk’s Office.  Please bring a valid photo ID with you.  A filing fee of $30.00, cash or check, is required at the time of filing the Notice of Intention of Marriage. 

There is a mandatory three-day waiting period before we are able to issue the Certificate of Marriage.  If your wedding is to take place in less than three days from the date of your license application, you must obtain a court order to waive the three-day waiting period requirement.  From the date the intentions are filed, your Marriage License will be good for sixty days.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Town Clerk’s Office at (508) 949-3800, Extension 4003.
