A FLORIDA marriage license is required for ALL marriages performed in the State of Florida and is good anywhere in the State, regardless of the county issuing the license. Marriage licenses must be applied for in person with BOTH the prospective applicants present. Applicants must be 18 years of age or older and provide the office with identification containing a photograph and birth date. One (1) identification is required with the applicant’s picture, signature, and birth date. Driver’s License, Passport, Military ID, Alien Registration Card, and State of Florida ID are acceptable. All U.S. Citizens must also provide their Social Security Number. Those who are not U.S. citizens and/or have no Social Security number may provide an Alien Registration Card, Passport or any other form of acceptable government issued photo ID. There is no residence or citizenship status requirement. A blood test is no longer required, and the marriage license is valid for sixty (60) days anywhere in the State of Florida.
NOTE: If either applicant has been previously married, he/she MUST provide the Clerk the DATE his/her last marriage ended by death, divorce or annulment. If that marriage ended within the last sixty (60) days, he/she must also bring proof showing how the marriage ended. (If it ended more than 60 days ago, proof is not required.)
Non-Florida Residents: As long as NEITHER of the prospective applicants is a Florida resident, there is NO WAITING PERIOD. The premarital preparation course is NOT offered to NON-residents.
Florida Residents: Effective January 1, 1999, if a couple has not completed a premarital preparation course from a qualified course provider, the effective date of the marriage license will be delayed three (3) days from the date the marriage license is issued. Those couples who have completed a course will have the fee reduced by $32.50 and will have no waiting period to get married.
