For those of us who grew up in North Carolina we could tell you in our sleep where we get our marriage licenses. But if you’ve recently moved here you might not know.
Marriage licenses in North Carolina are issued by the Register of Deedsoffices in each of the 100 counties.
The fee is $60 and the license is valid for 60 days immediately upon receipt, to be married anywhere in the state. Usually both parties must appear to get their license. Visit your local office website to read all the requirements. We’ve listed the counties in the greater Triangle area with links to their marriage license websites below.
