Marriage License + Additional Information
Florida Marriage License
A Marriage license must be obtained from the Florida Department of Health before your wedding.
Every marriage license is issued by a county court judge or clerk of the circuit court under his or her hand and seal. Marriage licenses are issued by counties and you can apply for your license at any county clerk’s. You can get married in any county in Florida, regardless of where you obtained your marriage license. To obtain a marriage license you need:
- Identification: a picture ID such as a driver’s license, state ID card, or valid passport; both parties will also have to provide their Social Security numbers, but do not need to provide their Social Security Cards.
- Fees: $86 Marriage license fees can be reduced to $61 you complete a licensed Florida pre-marital course.
- There are no blood tests or U.S. citizenship required
Marriage license is valid for 60 days after issuance. You must perform the ceremony of marriage before this 60 days has expired. Blood Tests are not required. For Florida Residents, there is a 3-day waiting period after issuance of the license before you can get married, unless you have completed the Florida pre-marital course, in which case the waiting period is waived.
After you receive your license, please remember to bring it with you on your wedding day.
