Getting married in Raritan Township?

Applicant(s) applying for a marriage application to obtain a marriage license: at least one applicant must be a Raritan Township resident.  If both applicants are out of state residents they must apply where the marriage is to take place.

An appointment is recommended to apply for a marriage application. Please call the Registrar's Office at (908) 806-6083 Monday - Friday from 9 AM to 4 PM. 

What to bring to your appointment:

  •     One witness who must be 18 years old or older (will require identification)
  •     State Issued Identification
  •     $28.00 application/license fee. 
  •     Provide the municipality where the marriage ceremony will take place and also provide the name, address, and telephone number of the officiant performing your ceremony.
  •     If widowed/widower you will need to provide where the death took place (City and State), the date, and spouse's name.
  •     If divorced, you will provide date and location of where the event took place. 

After the marriage application is completed, there is a 72 hour waiting period before the license may be issued.

Once the marriage license is issued it is good for 30 days.

The marriage license is only good in the State of New Jersey.

 

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Governor has issued an executive order waiving the 72 hour waiting period and has extended Marriage Licenses up to 90 days.
