New Jersey Marriage License Application Tips

New Jersey Marriage License Tips

Planning to file for a marriage license in New Jersey?  Garden State brides have a few things to keep in mind as they apply for the license that allows them to legally marry their beloved in the United States.


Both you and your fiancé will need to appear at the Registrar of Vital Statistics in the town one of you lives in (or in the town you will be married in if you are non-New Jersey residents).  You can pre-complete your application form, but DO NOT sign it.  You will need to sign your marriage license application under oath at the Registrar of Vital Statistics.


Also, it is wise to apply for your marriage license two weeks prior to your wedding.  There is a three day wait period for the license to be issued, and in many towns your marriage license will expire 30 days after it is applied for.


Knowing these tips will make filing for your New Jersey marriage license a breeze, so you can focus on the fun of wedding (and honeymoon) planning!
