Residents of the State intending to be joined in marriage shall record a notice of their intentions in the office of the clerk of the municipality in which at least one of them resides.
Party 1 & Party 2 must fill out an: Intention of Marriage Form.
Also, the marriage license must be signed in front of the Town Clerk before it can be issued. This license is valid in any community in Maine for a period of 90 days from the date the intentions are filed. It is our recommendation that an appointment is made to complete the marriage license. It is also our recommendation that after you receive your marriage license you complete a Vital Records Request and pay the $15.00 fee; once the marriage license is received back from the officiant we will send you a certified copy of the completed marriage license in the mail.
Out-of-State Residents may file their Notice of Intentions in any municipal office. The license is valid in any community within the State of Maine for a period of 90 days from the date the intentions are filed.
If either Party 1 or Party 2 has been previously married, a certified copy of the death certificate or divorce decree must be presented to the clerk.
The cost of the marriage license is $40.00. Certified copies of the completed license may be obtained from the clerk for a fee of $15.00 for one copy and $6.00 for each additional copy.
