    My partner and I are travelling to NYC from Scotland next month to get married.

    He has been married previously but was divorced in 2014. We have his divorce certificate to bring with us to City Hall, will this be enough? I’ve read reviews that in a few countries people need to also supply a Certificate of No Impediment. Is this the case for New York? I’m now in a panic as I can’t seem to confirm this online. Can anyone help?

    Also, do we need to bring our birth certificates as well as our passports?

    @claireb89  I found these links that might be of help to you. They all mention divorce requirements. My first instinct would be to say take as much paperwork as you can. It's always better to have more than not enough. Yes to passports, birth certificates and try to get a certified copy of the final divorce decree. My husband and I were married in Jamaica and we were both divorced. It was fairly straight forward but we had to leave the certified copies of our final divorce decrees with the authorities in Jamaica so it's very possible NY will require the same thing.
