Vital Statistics & Licensing

February 1, 2019

In July 2018, Gov. Phil Murphy signed legislation to allow transgender persons born in NJ to have their gender identity reflected on their birth certificates, which is now in effect. All amendments to Vital Records must be processed by the State Department of Health in Trenton. Their staff will provide the necessary form(s). Please download the Birth Certificate - Gender Identity Sex Change FAQs (PDF) for more information.

Englewood Department of Health is not a credit card merchant. However, for your convenience, you can process online requests using a major credit card through VitalChek Network, Inc., which we have partnered with to provide you with this service. Orders can be placed on the Vitalchek website.

An additional fee is charged by VitalChek for using this service. Credit cards accepted include American Express®, Discover®, Visa® or MasterCard®.

Additional Credit/Debit Card Service, at a modest fee to the customer, is available at the Customer Service Window (Point-of-Service).

View the Copies of Vital Records page to learn more.

You may also obtain your vital record from the New Jersey Department of Vital Statistics and Registration.

Effective June 22, 2018 - The minimum age for marriage in New Jersey is 18.

Applications for Marriage or Civil Union Licenses must be made with the Registrar's office at least 72 hours in advance of the time the couple expects to pick up the license. At least one of the applicants must provide proof of residence in Englewood unless both applicants are out-of-state residents. In that case, the couple may only apply in Englewood if the ceremony is to be in Englewood.

Applications are taken by appointment from 9:30 am to 11 am or by special arrangement with the Englewood Registrar, Deputy Registrar, or Alternate Deputy Registrar(s). Arrangements for your Ceremony must be made independently either with the Clergy or a Mayor or a Judge. Please review the Marriage Solemnization Authorization (PDF) to see a complete list of persons authorized to solemnize a ceremony.
