The Registrar of Vital Statistics is the keeper of birth, death, marriage records, domestic partnership records and civil union records, also referred to as “vital records”. These records are confidential and not openly accessible to the public. As per State Law, the Registrar is limited as to whom a record may be issued. A Vital record can be obtained in the municipality where the event occurred. The eligibility and necessary requirements are contained below.
The Office of the Registrar is located in the Tax Office located at the rear of City Hall. Office hours are Monday – Friday 9:00am to 4:00pm, excluding holidays. If you are getting married and need to make application for a marriage license, you must call to make an appointment. At least one of the applicants will need to be a Northfield resident, or if both are out of state, you will need to be getting married in Northfield. Marriage applications can be scheduled between 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. You will need to bring a witness with you and photo ID. The application fee is $28.00 and can be paid with cash (exact change please) or a check. Please complete the marriage license below, print, and bring with you to the appointment. Do not sign the application. That will be completed in person. Note: Governor Murphy has waived the application fee until July 1, 2023.
