How long is the license valid?

A typical marriage license is valid for 60 days, beginning the day after it is issued. Military personnel on active duty, as well as other extreme circumstances, may qualify for an extension of time on the marriage license. Couples can acquire a waiver for the 24 hour waiting period. Please call 516-812-3014 if you have questions concerning the license.
