Marriage Licenses

Marriage Licenses are by appointment only 
Please call 919-989-5161 to schedule your appointment


Thank you for selecting Johnston County to obtain your marriage license. It is an honor to record and safeguard your license for years to come. Please be aware that a Government issued photo ID is required to obtain a marriage license as well as know your Social Security Number.  If you don't have a Social Security Number, please contact our office 919-989-5161 for the types of documentation that we accept.  Both parties must appear together in our office to obtain the license. Our online marriage application (see links below) is another courtesy to the citizens of Johnston County to reduce your time in our office. I am also proud to announce a Spanish Instruction Packet on our website. This is for our Spanish-speaking customers, in order to help them understand the marriage process better.
