To obtain a marriage license in the State of New Hampshire, both persons must be present with a valid government issued photo ID (driver's license or passport).
If either member of the party has been previously married, the person MUST present the original certified legal copy of the document showing how the previous marriage ended (divorce / dissolution decree, death certificate). Photocopies of these documents are not acceptable as legal proof that the previous marriage has concluded.
The process of filing your intention to wed, and obtaining the license takes about 20-30 minutes to complete, so please plan accordingly. As such, we require that you appear at least 30 minutes prior to office closing to ensure adequate time to complete the application process.
The cost of the license is $50.00, cash, check or Credit Card**.
Your marriage license will be issued the same day you apply, and is valid for a period of 90 days.
Do not obtain a New Hampshire Marriage License if you are being married in another state or country.
