Getting Married in Maine

A step-by-step guide on getting your marriage license in Maine

Marriage for same-sex couples is now legal in Maine

Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders (GLAD) offers these tips on getting married:

• To get a license, a couple must call or go to the clerk's office in the city or town where either one lives, or plans on getting married in.

Once a license is issued, a couple has 90 days to get married.

• In Maine, a marriage can be performed by a judge or justice, a notary public, an attorney or an ordained clergy member.

• The ceremony must be witnessed by at least two people other than the officiant, and signed by the couple, the officiant and witnesses.

• The officiant must return the marriage certificate to the town clerk within seven days of the ceremony.
