New York City Introduces Online Marriage Licenses

For the first time in history, New York City is permitting couples to legally marry online, rather than requiring in-person appearances at the City Clerk’s Office. Dubbed “Project Cupid,” the new policy is scheduled to be implemented by May 8th, and will be available in 11 languages. Visit or, to virtually schedule and attend an appointment, upload required documents, and upload the signed marriage license for submission to the City Clerk.
