Town of Horseheads opens at 8:00am. The application process takes approximately 20 minutes. We ask you arrive by 3:30pm to obtain a marriage license. Both people must be present to obtain the marriage license, with birth certificate and proper photo identification. If either person was previously married, they must submit divorce paperwork or a death certificate. The divorce decree must show the filing date/time stamp of the County in which your divorce was filed.
The marriage ceremony may not take place within 24 hours from the time that the license is issued. The marriage license is only valid for 60 days, beginning the day after it is issued. If both applicants are 18 years of age or older, no consents are required. The certificate is only valid within New York State excluding New York City. For more information please contact the Town Clerk's Office at (607) 739-8783.
