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

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.
