Marriage Licenses

The Danby Town Clerk's Office can issue a marriage license to applicants 18 years of age and over.

Couples who intend to be married in New York State must apply in person for a marriage license to any town or city clerk in the state. This does not need to be the clerk of the town where you reside. Any town or city clerk may issue a marriage license to applicants 18 years of age or older. Applicants under the age of 18 must have written consent from their parents.

Please contact the Clerk’s office for more information, or book an appointment with the clerk to apply for your marriage license using the calendar options at the bottom of this page.

Be sure to bring the following with you to your appointment...

After the marriage takes place, the license is returned to the Town Clerk’s office and a Marriage Certificate is issued.

There is no additional cost for the Marriage Certificate. This is part of your marriage license fee.

Additional transcripts of Marriage Certificate may be acquired at a cost of $10 per certificate.

Marriage Records:

Please note that marriage records are the most private and secure records on file in the Clerk’s Office. These are sealed for 75 years during which time they are only available for release to the individuals named on the certificate. We cannot release marriage information to other persons, for genealogical or other reasons, until the 75 years are past.

Contact the Clerk’s Office for additional information about marriage license rights and requirements and marriage license records.

The Town of Danby sits on the traditional & ancestral land of the Gayogoho:no’ (Cayuga Nation), one of the five nations to first form the Haudenosaunee. Indigenous peoples were largely forced out of Upstate New York by the Sullivan-Clinton Expedition in 1779. The land that would become the Town of Danby was a part of the Watkins and Flint Purchase, a 336,380 acre patent granted by New York State to numerous eastern investors in 1794.
