Marriage Fees

The service fees are reflected on the following chart. The fees will be deposited into the Sussex County general fund. All paid fees are non-refundable. Any paid fee for a particular service may not be credited for a different service. Once the marriage license has been recorded, a certified copy of the marriage license can be obtained for $25.00.

Fees are due when licenses are issued, certified copies of licenses are provided or renewal ceremonies are scheduled.

THE OFFICE ONLY ACCEPTS CASH.
