Marriage License

 

There are two methods in which a marriage license can be obtained

1. Both parties must appear in this office. Each must have a picture ID and a Social Security Card. If either or both have been married before, proof must be provided that the last marriage has ended. Effective October 1, 2009 our office requires a certified birth certificate for all applicants.

2. One of the parties must complete an affidavit in lieu of appearance for a marriage license. The other party must appear in this office with a picture ID, Social Security card and the completed affidavit. If either or both have been married, proof must be provided that the last marriage has ended.

After the license is issued, parties can be married in North Carolina the same day or anytime up to 60 days of issuance. Fee is $60.00 CASH.
