each divorce decree (if married more than once) must be
submitted by both parties or a death certificate if widowed.

and/or a driver's license depending on the county in which
filing. 3. $26 - $30 in cash. The cost of the marriage license
varies among the four counties in the Pocono Mountains region.
Most courthouses will only accept cash so bring cash to
be sure. Price subject to change.
