How to book an in-person Marriage License appointment with the City Clerk’s Office in New York City on the Project Cupid website. Tips and Tricks on how to apply for one of the rare NYC marriage license appointments. Since Covid, the City Clerk’s Office doesn’t allow “walk-ins” anymore. For the time being, you will receive your Marriage License by appointment only. The “walk-ins” might resume at one point but at the time of this blog post, everything is by appointment only. Today we are going to show you what it looks like to secure an In-Person marriage license interview with the City Clerk’s Office on the Project Cupid website.
First, you’ll connect with the project cupid website at https://nyc.gov/cupid. Below you will see the screen that will come up. Now, make sure to click-on the ‘MARRIAGE LICENSE (IN-PERSON)’ button and then ‘NEXT’…
On the next page you’ll see at the top of the page a drop-down menu for the various office locations around the city. For this example, we select the Manhattan office but you can go to any City Clerk Office in the 5 boroughs of New York. Click ‘NEXT’…
If there are appointments available, they will populate under the available dates and times. In-Person appointments are released right at 9AM EST every Monday morning. To figure out when your date becomes available, go to the Monday of the week you are getting married and count back 3 Mondays. That is the Monday the appointments for your wedding week become available.
We chose to show this page on a day that multiple appointments are available so you can see what it will look like to book a specific date and time. But make sure you are in front of your computer, ready to go at 9am. These appointments will go fast. Pick the date and time that works best for you, specifically a date when both you and your partner are physically in the state of NY. You also need to pick a date and time that is at least 24 hours before your wedding date. So we have our date and time and then we click ‘NEXT’…
You enter your first and last name for Spouse A, phone number and email address. Then you do the same for Spouse B. Click ‘NEXT’ to review all your information, the date, time and location of your appointment. This is where you can edit anything that needs adjusting.
Once you click next you get a confirmation that your marriage license interview has officially been schedule. It will pop up on the screen and each of you will get an email with a confirmation number and a detailed rundown of what you need to do and bring for your marriage license interview.
