For Marriage License Information, Click on the name of your Clerk of Court below.

You are responsible for obtaining your marriage license.

To obtain your Florida marriage license, both you and your fiance must go to the Clerk of Court's office, together, with ID. The Clerk of Court currently charges $93.50 for the marriage license. This fee is reduced to $61.00 for Florida Residents who have completed a premarital preparation course (as provided in Florida Statute 741.0305(5) - which the Clerk has the course in their office).

FL residents (only) have a three (3) day waiting period after they obtain their license. The date you may marry on or after is clearly written on your marriage license; check the date! Your license is good for 60 days from date of purchase. You may use your FL marriage license to marry anywhere in Florida, regardless of which FL county you received it from. No blood test is necessary. Florida Destination Weddings: There is no waiting period if the bridal couple resides out of state and purchases their FL marriage license before or when they arrive.

On your Wedding day you must have your valid FL marriage license, ID for each of you, unity supplies (if any), your wedding rings and remainder of my payment. Your FL marriage license is the legal paperwork that is required to pronounce you legally married. You must have your original marriage license (not a copy) and ID's before the ceremony starts. By law it is required that your Officiant verifies that your ID matches the information on your marriage license, your signature matches and that the expiration date on the license is valid. Full payment is due with or without the marriage license. If a legal marriage license is not presented, then the wedding will be completed as a symbolic ceremony, this is not a legally binding marriage ceremony; it is a commitment ceremony which binds the promises and hearts of the couple.

 

Not all marriage ceremonies require a license. ~ As your Marriage Officiant I also write and officiate other ceremonies. Renewal of Vows, a Promise Ceremony, Symbolic & a Commitment Marriage Ceremony are all performed without a marriage license. These are moving meaningful ceremonies contracted by your hearts; without a license they are not legally binding.
