Frequently Asked Questions

Where do we get a marriage license and how much does it cost?

If both parties are Vermont residents, you may go to the town clerk in either of your towns of residence. If just one of you is a resident, you must buy the license in that town. The cost for a license is $45.00. Certified copies are also available for a $10.0 fee.
