Pastoral registration

Recommended Posts

 OK here’s my confusion. If you look at the ULC‘s websites on the page that talks about marriage is based on the states, it says nothing about New York except for if you were doing a marriage in the city of New York. I was talking to my pastor today and I asked him because he moved clear across state to become the pastor of our church so I asked him, when he moved across state did he have to register with this county in order to do marriages here. He advised me that in New York State pastors don’t register anywhere. So am I correct in assuming that there is no place that I need to register in order to perform a marriage in New York state?

Often it is best to confer with a county clerk, as rules may change from whatever online information may be given.

I am sure there is someone here from New York who may answer your question. It just might take a little waiting to get a response.

Marriage laws are implemented at the state level. The applicable law to answer your question will be found in New York State Domestic Relations Law.
