I hate the NYC Office of the City Clerk! Where is y marriage cert?!?!

It is SO frustrating dealing with them! My certificate is still not here, and there is only an automated message when I call their #. Does anyone have a # with PEOPLE who answer it?

We are having a problem with witness addresses, and they cannot help us, they said only the officiant can correct the mistake!

Good luck with getting yours soon!

I learned this little trick years ago when I worked for the Bronx DA and needed to get important people on the phone! I am so glad it still works!
Congrats Rebecca!

Re: I hate the NYC Office of the City Clerk! Where is y marriage cert?!?!

I just spoke to DH, who just called the rabbi and the clerk. The clerk this time wouldn't discuss stuff over the phone b/c of 'confidentialtiy' but said that we may have to have the witnesses come in in person. However, my witness/MOH lives in Massachusetts!!!! I'm SO upset, and I'm pretty upset about the Rabbi, when he got the letter, he did NOTHING about it. If I got a letter regaring a paying client, regarding something that I had potentially schrewed up, I would investigate, not just leave it. GRRRR!

Re: I hate the NYC Office of the City Clerk! Where is y marriage cert?!?!

They are so irresponsible over there.....I JUST got my certificate a few days ago (I was married Oct 15!!)...and I had to call them to see where it was!! They apparently were holding it b/c they couldn't read the rabbi's handwriting, but yet never bothered to CALL ME about it!!!!!!!!!!

Call (212) 669-2208 and ask for Inez. She is the one that does the certificates.

DH when down in person today, spoke to a supervisor nicely, and it is (hopefully!) fixed!

unfortunately, no way to do that. I live in Florida with DH now! Although, we are back and forth a lot. We'll be up in NY in 2 weeks and if I don't hear by then, I may just pay them a visit!

Re: I hate the NYC Office of the City Clerk! Where is y marriage cert?!?!

I have written this on other posts. But it took me 8 whole weeks before I got my certificate in the mail. My DH went to the city clerk in the Bronx to inquire around week 6 and he was told that they are very behind and the process can take anywhere between 8 to 9 even 10 weeks before you receive your certificate. We got ours on our 2 month anniversary. So believe me, I understand your pain and concern. But it will come soon.
