Getting a Maine marriage license:

  • Residents must file intentions and obtain a license in their town municipal clerk’s office. Non-residents may obtain a license for use anywhere in Maine at any municipal clerk’s office.
  • There is no waiting period. Maine requires no blood test, but the couple must possess photo ID.
  • There is a $40 fee for obtaining a Maine wedding license.
