If only one of the parties resides in the State, the parties shall file their intentions in the office of the clerk of the municipality in which the resident resides. If both parties reside out of the state, they may file their intentions in any municipal office.

Information needed for completion of the worksheet - name, residence, place of birth, date of birth of the bride and groom and the names and place of birth of their parents. If either the bride or groom has been married previously, they need to bring with them the document that dissolved that former marriage (death certificate or divorce decree –with a raised seal). After the couple has completed the form the clerk will type the marriage license and have the couple review and sign it.
