What is the procedure for obtaining a Marriage License?
To obtain a marriage license in Chicopee, both parties must come into the City Clerk’s Office to apply. We are open Monday-Friday from 9am to 5pm. There is a three day waiting period and a twenty-five dollar filing fee. The three day waiting period includes weekends and holidays. You may apply for a marriage license in any city or town in Massachusetts, however, the marriage record will only be on file in the city or town where the license was obtained. Once the marriage license is returned to our office, and recorded, certified copies may be obtained at a cost of $10.00 each. Blood tests are no longer required. If you are both over 21 years of age an ID is not required. If you are not over 21, but over 18, you will need a positive ID or driver's license. Under 18 you would need parental consent from the court. All documents are signed under the Pains and Penalties of Perjury. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact the City Clerk’s Office.
