In order to claim your marriage license after submitting an automated application, you must contact the Sampson County Register of Deeds for an appointment. At that time, you will complete the required information (social security numbers, valid picture identifications, and date last marriage ended if applicable. If this date occurred within the last year, the original document or a certified copy wll be required.) A $60.00 fee of cash, money order or Credit Card (Visa, Mastercard) is required in order to obtain you license.
Note: Pursuant to North Carolina General Statutes, once a marriage license has been issued it is only valid for sixty (60) days. You may purchase your license in any county and marry in that same county or any county in the state of North Carolina; however, your license must be returned to the county of issuance. If the marriage does not occur within sixty (60) days of the issuance of the license, a new application must be submitted, and the $60.00 fee must be paid again.
