A New York State marriage license can be obtained from the Town Clerk's Office for a fee of $40 paid by cash or check.
Both parties must apply in person and provide the following:
1) Proof of Age: a government issued birth certificate with a raised or multi-colored seal or naturalization papers.
2) Proof of Identity: a Driver's License, Passport, employment picture ID, or immigration record.
If this is not the first marriage for either party, the applicant(s) must present certified documents of the dissolution of any previous marriage(s), such as a divorce decree or death certificate.
Marriage licenses are not valid during the 24-hour waiting period after issuance, but they are good for 60 days after that.
Certified copies of the marriage certificates may be obtained only if the original marriage license was issued from the Pierrepont Town Clerk's Office. An application form must be submitted along with photo identification. There is a $10 fee for this service payable by cash or check.
