The couple is responsible for obtaining their own marriage licence. Here’s how:
- Photo IDs such as a driver’s license are required.
- If you are over 18 years old may apply on their own. If you are under 18, you must have written parental consent.
- If either of you have been married before you need to bring a certified copy (raised seal) of the divorce or the death certificate of the last spouse.
- No need for a blood test in Maine.
- Check beforehand with the municipal clerk where you are filing to determine whether there are unique municipality requirements.
Call ahead to the municipality to confirm hours of operation of the clerk’s office. In Wiscasset the office hours are generally 7 am to 5 pm Monday to Thursday when it’s not a holiday. It is wise to give yourself a couple of days to get the license in case there are unforseen complications or scheduling issues.
A few things to note:
- Fees are around $40
- There is no waiting period
- The license is valid for 90 days
