MARRIAGE INFORMATION

  • An individual who has reached the age of 18 may marry without parental consent.
  • Each applicant must show proof of identity by providing a driver’s license, state I.D., or passport. If there have been previous marriages for either applicant then a certified copy of death or divorce of the most recent marriages must be presented.
  • The first step in filing a marriage license is to have the marriage intentions recorded in writing, signed by both parties, and filed at the municipal office in which at least one of them resides. If the applicants are not residents of Maine, they may apply in any Town or City in Maine.
  • After the above requirements have been met, the marriage license may be issued but must be used within 90 days from the date the intentions were filed.
  • Persons authorized to solemnize marriages in Maine include (if a resident of this state): a justice or judge; a lawyer admitted to the Maine Bar; or a notary public. The following may perform the ceremony whether a resident or nonresident of the state of Maine and whether or not a citizen of the United States: an ordained minister of the gospel; a cleric engaged in the service of the religious body to which the clerk belongs; or a person licensed to preach by an association of ministers, religious seminary or ecclesiastical body.
