Requirements may vary as each county in Connecticut could have their own requirements.

Marriage License in Connecticut

ID and Residency Requirements:

Connecticut law requires that you present photo id such as a driver's license or a passport. You also need to know the following: You do not have to be a resident of Connecticut, but you do need to apply in either the town where one of you lives, or in the town where you plan on getting married.

If it is difficult for you both to appear at the same time at the Clerk's office to apply for your marriage license, you can appear individually.

Previous Marriages:

You will need to show your divorce decree, or have information regarding date, county and state of death of previous spouse. If your name has changed, you need to bring a certified copy of your divorce decree.

Covenant Marriage Option:

No.

Waiting Period:

None. Some towns may require you to pick the license up the next day.

How Much a Marriage License Cost?:

The marriage license fee in Connecticut is $30. Most locales won't accept credit cards or out-of-state checks. Cash is best.

Common Law Marriages:

No.

Proxy Marriages:

No. Proxy marriages are not allowed in Connecticut.

Cousin Marriages:

Yes.

Same-Sex Marriages:

Under 18:

If under sixteen years of age, the written consent of the judge of probate for the district where the minor resides must be obtained. Written parental consent is needed if under 18 years of age.

Name Change:

Getting a marriage license with your new name on it does not mean your name has automatically changed. If you need to change your last name, you can use an online marriage name change kit.

Officiants:

Judges, retired judges, Connecticut state referees, Connecticut justices of the peace, and ordained or license clergymen (belonging to any state) may perform weddings in Connecticut. If a friend or relative wants to perform your wedding ceremony, they can if an authorized officiator is also present to confirm your marriage ceremony and to sign your marriage license.
