When can I pick up my Marriage Certificate?

If the marriage took place in Hamilton Twp, once the marriage is official, the Officient signs the license and sends it to the Hamilton Twp Health Office.

The certificate cannot be picked up until the Health Office has received the signed license.  Contact the Health Office via Citizen Service Request or call 609-890-3826 to see if the license has been received.

Once received, the bride and/or groom must go to the Health Office; Mon-Fri from 9 am -4 pm.  If a child of the individuals is picking up the marriage certificate, they must bring there birth cert (marriage certificate if the name is different) with valid ID. Must be 18 years or older.  At the office, they will fill out a short form and show identification.  There is a  $15 fee for a certified copy of the Marriage Certificate payable in the form of cash, money order, or debit/credit (2.9% service charge).

If you live in Hamilton and therefore applied for a license in Hamilton, but the marriage took place in another municipality, you must contact that municipality for your marriage certificate.
