How To Get A Marriage License


General Information:

  • Marriage licenses must be applied for in person by both parties. You must schedule an appointment: 203-783-3210 or email: [email protected]
  • We can only issue a license for marriage ceremonies taking place in the city of Milford
  • Due to Covid-19, the license is good for 125 days from the date of issuance
  • The fee is $50.00 plus $20 for a certified copy payable by cash, check or credit card (additional $1.50 convenience fee for credit card payments)

Due to Covid-19, this is our new procedure:

1. Your marriage license worksheet and copies of photo identifications must be submitted in advance of your appointment by:

  • Email: [email protected]
  • Fax: 203-783-4856
  • Mail: Milford City Clerk's Office, 70 West River Street, Milford, CT 06460

2. IMPORTANT: Please do not include your social security information on the worksheet. We will obtain that at a later time.

3. Marriage licenses are now issued "curbside." We will meet you outside at a designated spot to issue the license.

4. The fee is $50.00 for the marriage license and $20.00 for a certified copy.
