Office of Vital Statistics

Marriage license applications are taken by appointment only

Every attempt will be made to issue a birth / marriage / death certificate at the counter, however, circumstances may arise that may prevent over the counter issuance of a certificate.  In this case, the application will be accepted at the counter and the certificate will be mailed to the applicant in a timely manner.

The Office of Vital Statistics is responsible for maintaining and safekeeping vital records of births, marriages, civil unions, domestic partnerships and deaths that occurred in the Township of Denville.  Our office issues certified copies of the above events.
