Marriage License Information

In Connecticut a marriage license must be obtained from the town where the marriage will take place.
You will be asked to show your driver’s license, or other form of legal identification.

The partners do not need to appear at the same time but both must come in and sign the license in person. 
There is no waiting period; the marriage license may be issued up to 65 days in advance of the wedding date.
Cost for a marriage license is $50.00Cash or Check we do not accept Credit or Debit Cards.
