Marriage Intentions

This is the Northampton City Clerk's schedule for filing Marriage Intentions.  Please select from the time slots available.  Plan for 45 minutes to complete the required paperwork and for the Clerk to administer the oath.  

All appointments begin on the hour (i.e., 9:00 am, 10:00 am, etc.). Both parties must be present before we begin the process of completing the paperwork.  If you are unable to keep the appointment, please contact us at (413) 587-1224.

The Office is observing all safety standards to prevent the spread of COVID-19 as established by the Northampton Health Department.  Our staff will be unable to meet with you if more than two people are present when intentions are filed.  We reserve the right to deny services to members of the public who are not wearing face coverings or adhering to protocols necessary to prevent the spread of germs.  Please reschedule if either party is sick or has COVID-19 related symptoms.   

The fee for filing Marriage Intentions is $40, payable in cash only, and is non-refundable.  

Please bring your license, social security number, if you  have one (the card is not required), and information about your marriage plans (who will perform the service, date of the service, etc.).


When you arrive at City Hall, please come to the front door and call (413) 587-1224.  We will meet you outside to complete the paperwork and administer the oath.

City Hall is located at 210 Main Street, Northampton, MA
