In order to obtain a marriage license at least one of the applying spouses must live in West Deptford Township (unless the applying couple lives out of state, then they may apply for their license in West Deptford if this is the place of the wedding). Once the couple is married, the completed license gets filed in the municipality where the wedding occurred, that municipality is also where you should obtain your certified copies.
The couple should print out the Marriage License Application and fill out the first page with their information. Please make sure you write clearly and legibly.
