  2. If neither applicant is a New Jersey resident, submit the application in the municipality where the marriage ceremony will be performed, the license is only valid in the issuing municipality.

Please contact the Registrar to determine if license applications are handled during business hours or by appointment.

Required documents when applying for a marriage license:

  1. Proof of identity by presenting your driver’s license, passport or state/federal I.D.
  2. Proof of your residency.
  3. Your social security card or social security number.*

One copy will be used for the religious ceremony and the other for the civil ceremony.
