NC Marriage License Requirements

Applications are accepted at Register of Deeds offices M-F, 8:30 am - 4:30 pm. Times may vary by county.

For couples wishing to marry, both individuals must be present when applying.

$60.00 cash payment due at time of application.

No physical required.
 

Immediately upon issuance, the license is valid for 60 days.
 

Regardless of where your wedding is actually held in the state, you may use a license issued at any NC Register of Deeds office, but the license must be returned to the issuing office for filing.
 

Divorced applicants must provide the date of their divorce and some counties will request an original or certified copy of the Divorce Decree. Because not all counties are uniform in their requirements, it is recommended that you call the office at which you intend to apply to learn of their specific requirements before you go.
 

Likewise, should either of the individuals applying not be American citizens, it is best to call the office at which you intend to apply for your license to learn what paperwork will be required of you.
 

Both applicants must present identification;

 

  • 21 years of age or older may use;
    current driver’s license
    current State ID Card
    current Passport
    current Military ID
     
  • 20 years of age or younger must have a certified copy of their Birth Certificate and meet all requirements of their county (see website links on left).
     
  • Both applicants must provide their Social Security numbers with verification through their Social Security Cards or W-2 Forms.

For those who have previously had a Commitment Ceremony - that ceremony is not recognized in North Carolina as a legal marriage.

 

To be legally married, couples must;

  • purchase a marriage license
  • have another ceremony performed by an ordained Minister or a state Magistrate
  • the marriage license must be filed within ten days of the wedding

at the Register of Deeds office where the license was purchased
