Marriage Licenses Application


Marriage Licenses

Marriage Licenses must be obtained in the Town Clerk's Office of the town in which the marriage is taking place for a fee of $50. Blood tests are no longer required in the State of Connecticut. There is no waiting period after applying for your license.

When applying for a marriage license, both parties must appear and must provide proper photo identification such as a driver's license or passport.  

Be prepared to answer questions:

  • Where you were born
  • What state or country your parents were born in
  • Your mother's maiden name
  • The date and place of the ceremony
  • Who is officiating the ceremony

The ceremony must be performed within 65 days from the application. If you wish your ceremony be performed by a Justice of the Peace, you will need to make those arrangements yourself. For your convenience, please see the following link for a list of Waterford JP's.
