Town Clerk & Records Management Officer
Marriage: A marriage license is valid for 60 days beginning the day it is issued. There is a 24 hour waiting period before the marriage ceremony can occur. To obtain a marriage license, both the bride and groom must bring an original copy or certified copy of his and her birth certificates. A second proof of identity from each applicant is required and may include:
1) Driver's license
3) Employment or photo ID and
4) Immigration record
Certified Transcript (copy) of Marriage Record
Information regarding all previous divorce decrees must be presented. The cost of a marriage license is $40.00 payable to the Dover Town Clerk. After the ceremony, the officiant completes the marriage license and submits the form to the town clerk's office. Upon receipt, the town clerk will issue an original marriage certificate. For a certified transcript of marriage, applicants must complete the DOH-301 (Application to Town/City Clerk for Copy of Marriage Record) and remit a $10.00 fee payable to the Dover Town Clerk.
