MARRIAGE LICENSES:

A marriage license is required for any person intending to be married in the State of New York. The license may be obtained anywhere in the State. There is a 24-hour waiting period before the license takes effect ; the marriage license is valid for 60 days. To obtain a marriage license in Lewisboro, the couple must make an appointment with the Town Clerk's office at 914-763-3511. For residents, we are happy to make an after-hours appointment. The license procedure takes about 20 minutes.

Marriage license applicants must bring the following documents:

  1. a certified copy of their birth certificate, stating their mother's maiden name and their father's name;
  2. a picture government identity - a driver's license or a passport;
  3. if this is not the first marriage for each, we require a certified copy of each judgment of divorce. The raised seal of the court must appear on the last page along with the original signature of the Judge or Court Clerk.

NOTE: NO MARRIAGE LICENSE WILL BE ISSUED WITHOUT THE ABOVE DOCUMENTS

Call the Town Clerk's Office if you have any questions regarding the required documents for the marriage license. The license fee is $40.00. After the ceremony, your officiant will return the marriage license to us, and we will issue a marriage certificate. Marriage license records are forwarded to the New York State Department of Health.
