City Clerk

City Hall re-opened to the public on March 22, 2021, but we encourage you to do transactions by mail whenever possible. Be advised that only one party will be allowed in the City Clerk’s office at a time, so you may need to wait longer than usual should you choose to come in person. A mask that covers your nose and mouth will be required at all times in City Hall, and visitors are expected to adhere to public health guidelines to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Domestic partnerships are currently available by appointment. Please call 518-279-7134 to schedule.

Domestic Partnerships

The Office of the City Clerk registers Domestic Partnerships with an appointment Monday-Friday from 8:30 am until 4:00 pm. Please plan to spend up to 30 minutes for processing. You can download the Domestic Partnership Application from this page, or pick two up at the City Clerk’s office in person. If you print the application prior to coming to our office, please print two but do not sign them beforehand.

City Law requires:

  • Government-issued Photo Identification;
  • Proof of Joint Responsibility for Basic Financial Obligations;
  • Proof of Cohabitation;
  • Proof of termination of prior marriages (if applicable). Please refer to the application for acceptable forms of proof in each category.

There is a $30.00 fee which includes one Certificate of Domestic Partnership. The fee is payable via cash or check at the City Clerk’s Office. Checks should be made out to Troy City Clerk. No refunds will be given once the Certificate is issued.

You can get additional certified copies of the Certificate of Domestic Partnership in person at the Clerk’s office or have one mailed to you.
