Where to Get a Marriage License on Long Island and in The City of New York

New York State marriage licenses are good for 60 days from the date of issue and take 24 hours to mature. Use this list to find the town or city hall nearest you and then reach out to them for an appointment. While NYC accepts a single form of ID (a Passport or Drivers License), please remember that Nassau and Suffolk Counties require 2 forms of ID. The first category is a Birth or Baptismal Certificate, second is a Passport or Drivers License. If either of you has ever been married before, proof of termination of the previous marriage (original or certified copy) will also be required.
