Anyone, whether a New Hampshire resident or not, may go to any New Hampshire City or Town Clerk’s office to apply for a NH marriage license. Be prepared to show identification that proves you are of legal age to be married in New Hampshire.
If you have been married before, you must show proof as to how the last marriage ended; certified copy of a death certificate, divorce decree or annulment. The document must have a raised seal.
The license is valid for 90 days from the date of filing. If that period expires before the wedding is performed, you must apply for a second license.
The license fee is $50.00, plus $15.00 for a certified copy after the marriage, for a total of $65.00. Additional certified copies requested at the same time are $10.00 each. Both spouses must be present to sign the license before it can be issued.
