@shookdc:  I am ordained with ULC as well. I am conducting a ceremony for friends in New York this October. Unfortunately, it varies from state to state. In New York, they do NOT recognize ordination and suggest that I have my friends get married at the JOP before (my signing the license will still be their “celebrated” wedding day) OR I can have them sign a contract stating that should they chose to desolve their marriage in the future, they understand that I am not defrauding them and they cannot sue me for any damages incured in a divorce as techincally, they weren’t legally married.

We are also getting ordained by a friend who was ordained online. We were told the same thing. For the time being at least, there is nothing else they need to do. I had my Fiance call up the county for this and they told him that their was no “proof” required. Down the road if laws change and people get divorced it may be a problem but as it stands you should have no problem getting married “legally.”
