  1. Marriage Application: Application for Vermont Civil Marriage. 


A Vermont marriage license may be obtained from any Vermont Town Clerk. The marriage License may be used on the day it is purchased, and then it is good for 60 days. Please review the application for the information required from the applicants. If either applicant has been previously married, the month and year the marriage/civil union ended is required on the application. If the marriage/civil union ended in a divorce within the last 12 months, the applicant must show documentation with the date the marriage/civil union ended.
