 PET LICENSES

Please remember that 2014 Pet Licenses are available in the Borough Clerk’s Office, 24 N. Black Horse Pike. The fees are $22.20 for spayed and neutered dogs and $25.20 for non-spayed and non-neutered dogs. All cats licenses are $21.00. Please note that your pet’s rabies vaccine must not expire before October 30, 2014. If it does expire prior to that date, you will not be able to obtain a license until the pet is re-vaccinated.

Pet licenses are considered late after 3/31 of the current year. A late fee in the amount of $20.00 will be added to the cost of the license.

The rabies clinic is scheduled for Saturday, March 8, 2014, from 10 AM to 12 Noon at the Harry Williams Senior Building, 2 Broadway.

NOTARY SERVICES

The Borough Clerk’s office has two notaries on staff. A notary is a witness to a signature. The person whose signature is being notarized must be present with identification. Our staff only handles simple notaries. We do not notarize documents which require a witness and/or witnessess to be provided in addition to the notary. Please take any paperwork requiring a complex notary to an attorney.

MARRIAGE LICENSES

GETTING MARRIED?
Those couples who are Runnemede residents should take note. Applications for marriage licenses are by appointment only. The fee is $28.00 in cash. No checks will be accepted.  Applicants must bring a witness who is 18 years of age or older. Divorced applicants must produce a final divorce decree and widows or widowers must furnish a certified death certificate.  Applicants who have been in prior civil unions or domestic partnerships must furnish proof of dissolution of those unions.  If applicants have been married in another state, please furnish copy of marriage license, as your marriage in New Jersey will be considered a remarriage.  Applicants should know in what state or country each of their parents were born as well as the maiden name of their mothers.  Applicants must also provide birth certificates, photo identification and social security numbers. The date of the marriage ceremony and the name and mailing address of the person who is to perform the ceremony are also required. If neither of you is a New Jersey resident, you must apply for the license in the New Jersey town where the ceremony will take place.  The waiting period is 72 hours.

Call the Registrar of Vital Statistics at 856-939-5161 for an appointment.
