The marriage license application must be made in the New Jersey municipality in which either applicant resides and the license is valid only in the State of New Jersey.
If neither applicant is a New Jersey resident, the license application must be made in the municipality where the ceremony will occur, and the license is only valid in that municipality.
Both applicants must appear in person, with valid government-issued photo ID (Driver’s License, passport, or State/Federal ID) . One witness, at least 18 years old with valid photo ID, must accompany the applicants when applying.  You must also have a ceremony date scheduled and an officiant to perform the ceremony prior to calling for an appointment.
A marriage license can only be issued a minimum of 72 hours (3 days) after application is made.

Once issued, the license is only valid for thirty (30) days.
