Couples must appear in person to file their Intention to marry three (3)
days prior to the wedding. Marriage certificates are generated from
information on these Intentions. In Chilmark, the process costs $15.00 for
the Marriage Intention, the Chilmark Marriage Certificate issued to the couple when the solemnized license is received and the archival copy of the original marriage certificate held at Town Hall. True copies of the original marriange certificate are available from the town clerk's office for $3.00 a piece.
A marriage license may be issued from any city or town in the Commonwealth
regardless of where in Massachusetts the wedding is taking place.
As of January 2005 premarital blood work is no longer required
