Apply for your St. John wedding
  • Type needed information on both forms (Application for Marriage License, & License and Certificate of Marriage). Then print out both forms. Then sign both forms: on the License and Certificate of Marriage, groom to sign #15 and bride to sign #16; and on the Application for Marriage License, both sign where it says "signature" in the proper columns for groom and bride. Both forms are then mailed with the other items below.
  • Applications should attach a letter with the application detailing:
    1. Dates of visit to the island.
    2. The date you plan to pick up your marriage license.
    3. Date of wedding & wedding officiate. ( Anne Marie Porter)
    4. Your daytime phone number.
  • If either party is divorced, a certified copy of 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 former partner is deceased, a certified copy of the death certificate must accompany the application. Divorce decrees and death certificates must be in english.
  • A postal money order or certified check for $200.00 made out to the Superior Court of the USVI must accompany the application. ($100.00 for application and $100.00 for the license)
  • The Superior court must receive your marriage license application at least 8 days prior to you picking up your license on St Thomas.
  • 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 reciept. To protect 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 Farrely Justice Complex on the waterfront in Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas (Federal Building). The court is open 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday thru Friday and 10 a.m. to 12 noon on Saturdays.
    When you go to the court to pick up your marriage license, there is a dress code:
    No Shorts, halter tops, flip flops or beach ware. The court wants the men to wear long pants and the 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.

Be sure and mail your application and required information Certified Mail, Return Reciept 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 ext. 6207. 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.
