I am getting married. What are the requirements for obtaining a marriage license?

If you would like to get married in NYS you can obtain a marriage license from any Town or City Clerk.  You will need to have photo ID (driver’s license, passport), birth certificate, and if you have been married before, judgment of divorce for all previous marriages.  Both parties must be present and we ask that you are in before 4pm.  The license is not valid for the first 24 hours and is good for 60 days.  The cost is $40 if you pay with cash or check or $43 if using MasterCard or Discover.  Note - your license will always be on file where you obtained the license, NOT in the city, town, or village that you ultimately get married.
