A couple who intends to be married in New York State, must apply for a marriage license to any town or city clerk in the state. The state of New York does not require couples to be residents of New York to marry in the state, but licenses issued in the state of New York must be used within the state. The application must be signed by both applicants in the presence of the town or city clerk and representatives cannot apply for the license on behalf of applicants. Even if the representative is given Power of Attorney, the applicants cannot substitute their personal appearance.
