 Warren and Christie's Wedding Day - 2-14-06 - 043

Do we both have to be present at the Clerk’s Office to apply for a license?

Yes. Both of you must sign the application form and take an oath to the accuracy of the information provided

 

How much is the license?

The fee for the marriage license is $93.50. This fee is reduced to $61.00 for Florida residents who have completed a premarital preparation course

 

What do we need to get a marriage license?

Both of you must provide proof of the following:

·         You must complete an application form

 ·         Provide proof that both of you are 18 years of age

 ·         You both must have a driver’s license, state ID, military ID or passport.

 ·         You must provide your Social Security Numbers. Non-citizens may provide a Social Security Number or an Alien Registration Number issued by the Immigration and Naturalization Service.

 ·         If either party has been previously married, you must note on the application how and when the marriage ended.

 

Where do I get it?

A marriage license may be obtained Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., at any of the  offices of the Clerk of the Circuit Court

 

How long do we have to wait?

The good new for out of towners is there is no waiting period for NON-RESIDENTS

For our Florida residents, there is a 3 day waiting period unless you take the pre-marital prep course

 

How long is the marriage license valid?

Florida marriage licenses are valid for 60 days from the issue date. The marriage ceremony must be performed between the effective date and the expiration date on the license.

 

Do we have to be from the United States?

No. There is no citizenship or resident requirement.

 

Do we have to obtain our marriage license in Florida?

Yes.  You can apply for your marriage license in any county in Florida and then get married anywhere in Florida, but the license has to be issued from one of the Florida Clerk of The Court offices to be valid.
