Marriage Licenses
To apply for a marriage license, both parties must come to the City Clerk's Office between 8:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, exclusive of holidays. 

A marriage license is issued for a period of 60 days and must be used within that period. There is also a 24-hour waiting period, which means that if you apply for your license at noon on Friday, you cannot be married until noon on Saturday. This regulation cannot be waived without a court order. The license is only valid for marriages performed in the State of New York.  

For a civil ceremony at our City Court, please call (914) 824-5641 to make an appointment
