Everyone who intends to get married in New York State must obtain a marriage license from their town or city clerk. The license is valid for use anywhere in New York State for a period of 60 days. Once the license is issued there is a 24 hour waiting period before the couple can marry. The couple must meet the following upon filing for a marriage license:

  • Both Parties must be present
  • Be at least 16 years old (parental consent required for all persons under the age of 18)
  • Both parties must present their birth certificates
  • Both parties must show photo identification (i.e. Driver’s License)
  • If applicable, both parties must present original or newly certified divorce decrees of all marriages

A NYS marriage license application asks basic information such as mother’s maiden name, your city/town of birth, birth date, address and country where your parents were born.
