In most circumstances you may apply for a marriage license at any NC county clerk office where you plan to be married. These offices are usually located in the county probate court or circuit court. The following outlines the requirements you must follow to obtain your license.
Following your wedding ceremony, you will receive a marriage certificate, which is a piece of paper proving that you are legally married. This certificate will serve as evidence of your marriage, which you'll need when you begin the process of notifying several goverment agencies about your name change, as well as any non-government institutions that you do business with (ie, banks, employers, credit cards, memberships, etc).
