What is the procedure for applying for a marriage / civil union license?
The license must be obtained from the municipality in which either party resides, if they live in New Jersey. If both parties live outside of New Jersey, the license must be obtained in the municipality in which the ceremony takes place. A license applied for and issued in New Jersey may never be used outside of New Jersey, and a license issued in another state may never be used in New Jersey.
