What documents are needed to obtain a marriage license?

All documents must be certified with a raised seal. You will need a birth certificate or Baptismal Certificate (if birth certificate cannot be obtained) or Naturalization Papers (if birth certificate cannot be obtained) and a photo ID (driver’s license, non-driver’s or work ID with a birth date on it).

All previous marriage information is needed (Divorce, Annulment, Death certificates). Passports cannot be used as a substitute for a birth document. Both parties must be present with $40 (cash only).
