Application for your license can be made in the hometown of either applicant and the license that is issued may be used anywhere in the state of New Jersey. If you are both New Jersey residents and are planning an out-of-state ceremony, contact the Registrar in the town where the ceremony will take place. View our guide (PDF) for more information.
