License Information
for Same Sex Weddings
    • Because the couple must pick up their marriage license in person from the Superior Court, with a form of photo identification and your copy of the postal money order receipt. Equally important to protecting yourself, it’s a good idea to photostat everything you mail to the superior court and bring it with you when you pick up your marriage license. The Superior Court is located in the Alexander Farrelly Justice Complex on the waterfront in Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas, Virgin Islands (Federal Building). The court is open from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday thru Friday.
      Equally important to know, when you go to the court to pick up your marriage license, there is a dress code:
      No Shorts, halter tops, flip flops, or beachwear. The court wants the men to wear long pants and women to wear dresses.
    • If you want to pick up your marriage license on a day the court is closed (Sundays and Holidays), you may do so between 10:00 and 11:00 a.m. There is an additional charge of $150. Please speak with me about how to avoid this.
    • Your wedding officiate, Anne Marie Porter, is ordained by the American Fellowship Church.
      • The USVI courts are now accepting marriage applications and payments online. You can register here to create an account then, once you have your account, go here to complete the forms.

      USVI MARRIAGE LICENSE APPLICATION INFORMATION
      • If either party is divorced, a certified copy of the divorce decree must accompany the application (a “certified copy” is stamped with the raised seal from the court where your divorce was issued). A certified copy from Vital Statistics is not accepted. The certified copy must come from the court where the divorce was issued. The court here wants your ENTIRE DIVORCE DECREE. If a former partner is deceased, a certified copy of the death certificate must accompany the application. Divorce decrees and death certificates must be in English.

      PICKING UP YOUR USVI MARRIAGE LICENSE APPLICATION INFORMATION

    Also, be sure and mail your application and required information Certified Mail, Return Receipt Requested.

    Helpful Hint: Two weeks after mailing your application, phone the marriage license clerk, Ms. Monsanto, and ask for your license number and tell her when you will pick up your license. 340-774-6680. If you get her answering machine, leave the spelling of the grooms’ name and the date you mailed your application, and the date you will pick up your license.
