There are a variety of proceedings and court hearings that are loosely categorized as “Family Court”, including Adoptions,  Child Support, Divorce Court, Juvenile Court, Marriages, and Name Changes. These matters are filed with and heard by several different divisions in our office, including our Child Support, Civil, and Juvenile Divisions. Marriage Ceremonies are performed by a Civil Magistrate ONLY after a couple receives a Marriage License from a Register of Deeds in North Carolina.
