HelloCustomer and welcome back to Just Answer.

Marriage licenses/marriage records are not public record in New York. Please see this site: http://www.cityclerk.nyc.gov/html/marriage/records.shtml

If you need this for yourself, you can apply in person or online, as the site above directs, to get a copy of a marriage certificate. If you are searching for someone else's marriage record, unfortunately, you will not be able to find it online.

Therefore if you are to marry someone, but you suspect that they may already me married. There is no way for me to find out if the person is married already.

Hi again, and thanks for your reply.

If you apply for a marriage license, the system will most likely alert you if the person you are to marry is already married. You can also call the City Clerk's office and ask for more information, if you suspect this person may already be married: http://www.cityclerk.nyc.gov/html/contact/contact.shtml

I wish you much good luck!
