Marriage/Civil Union & Domestic Partnership Applications

Applications for Marriages/Civil Unions for Red Bank residents are done by appointment only. Please call 732-530-2755 to make an appointment and to review what is required at the time of application. Applicants must show valid photo identification (such as driver's license or passport) and proof of Red Bank address (if it is not on their driver's license).  Suggested additional documents include birth certificates (passport can be used as substitute) and, if either applicant has been married or in a Civil Union previously, they should bring divorce papers or a death certificate to prove the termination of the prior marriage/civil union. Please be advised, there is a 72-hour waiting period between the time of application and the time the license can be issued. Applications can be taken up to six months before the ceremony date. To save time, applicants can bring the completed application (PDF) with them to the appointment.
Applications for Domestic Partnerships (available only to individuals 62 years and older) for any New Jersey resident are also done by appointment. Please call 732-530-2755 to make an appointment and to find out what is required at the time of application.
