What You Need to Know:

  • Residency: You don’t have to be a Massachusetts resident to get married here.
  • Marriage License: Obtain a valid marriage license from a Massachusetts city or town clerk. This requires an application fee (which varies by location), proof of age (certified birth certificate, passport, or other document), and your Social Security number. Note: Out-of-state marriage licenses are not accepted.
  • Waiting Period: Typically, there is a three-day waiting period for a marriage license. However, in special circumstances, this can be waived by filing a request for a “Marriage without Delay” with the probate court or district court in the city, town, or county where you applied for the license.

Steps to Expedite Your Marriage:

1. File a Request: Submit a “Marriage without Delay” intake form here.

2. Perform the Ceremony: Once the waiting period is waived, proceed with your wedding ceremony.

3. Return the License:  After the ceremony, the officiant must sign and return your marriage license to the city or town clerk where it was issued to ensure it is legally recorded.
