As of October 1, 2009, Marriage licenses must be obtained in the town where the ceremony is to be held. There is no longer a requirement for premarital bloodwork or a waiting period in Connecticut. Licenses are issued by appointment only, Monday thru Friday 8:15 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.
At the Town Clerk’s office, the parties will fill out a license worksheet (general information about each person, including parents’ names/maiden names and the state or country of parents’ birth). The license will be typed while the applicants wait, and they will leave with their license in hand. It is then valid for 65 days and must be used in Glastonbury. There is a license fee of $30.00 due at the time of application.
After the ceremony has been performed, certified copies will be available at the Town Clerk's office, and subsequently in the towns of residence of both parties. Effective October 1, 2009, the fee for each certified copy is $20.00.
