What Do We Need to Get a Marriage License in NYC?

If you plan to get married in NYC at the Statue of Liberty or are planning an Ellis Island wedding, then you will need a marriage license. Keep in mind that you must wait for 24 hours after receiving your license before you can get married, unless you receive a judicial waiver, so be sure to obtain your license well in advance of your Ellis Island wedding.

You can start the marriage license process online, but to obtain a license, you and your prospective spouse must appear together at the Office of the City Clerk. You will need to complete an application and provide a government-issued ID. If your ID does not list your birth date, then you will need proof of age as well. After you sign an affidavit claiming that the information on your application is true, your license will be issued while you wait.
