The Town Clerk is responsible for issuing a New York State Marriage License to qualified applicants as well as recording the marriage with the New York State Department of Health. The marriage record is on file in this office and in Albany.  Licenses to marry in New York State may be obtained from the Town Clerk’s office regardless of the residence of either of the parties. Once the license is issued and the 24-hour waiting period has passed, the ceremony must be performed within 60 days and can be performed anywhere in New York State.  In order to obtain a marriage license, the applicants must present photo ID (driver’s license or passport) and their birth certificate. Both applicants must appear in person.

Marriage license applicants whose previous marriage(s) ended in divorce, annulment or death of a spouse, must provide proof of dissolution of all previous marriage(s) by presenting a certified copy of Divorce or Annulment decrees and/or a certified copy of a Death Certificate for each previous marriage. Blood tests are no longer required.  The fee for obtaining a New York State Marriage License is $40 payable by cash, check, money order or credit card (user fees will apply). Additional Certified Transcripts of Marriage are available for $10 per copy.

Licenses are issued by the Eden Town Clerk’s office from 8:00 am through 4:00 pm Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday and 8:00 am through 12:00 noon on Wednesday.  After-hours appointments are available upon request.

The New York State Department of Health can be contacted at 1-855-322-1022.
