County system allows couples to buy marriage licenses online

Getting married in Mecklenburg County just got easier with the county’s Register of Deeds Office launching an online marriage license order and payment system.

Through the Permitium system, couples can buy certified marriage license copies for about $15 per copy. That includes a convenience fee of $3.35 per copy and $10 for the certified copy.

The office will accept all major credit cards.

The county will also release its Community Service Grant application for the coming fiscal year on Feb. 23, and hold an orientation for experienced and new applicants that day. The information session will be at 10 a.m. in Room 267 at the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Government Center. Anyone interested in attending should RSVP at grants@mecklenburgcounty. David Perlmutt
