Once the wedding ceremony is complete, and the Town Clerk receives the marriage license back at the Town Office from the person who performed the ceremony. The Municipal Clerk records the marriage electronically. After the license is recorded, the couple may obtain a Certificate of Marriage from the Office of the Municipal Clerk where they applied for the license or from the Town or City where the ceremony took place.
The Certificate of Marriage is needed for a name change on a driver's license, passport, bank account, social security card, etc. Please note that the Municipal Clerk does not automatically mail the certificate of marriage. It is the couple's responsibility to appear before the Municipal Clerk to fill out an application and pay the fee to obtain the marriage certificate or they may use the online Vital Records Ordering service.
