Marriage License Overview

If you plan to receive your marriage license, must appear in person at the clerk's office and provide:

  • A complete application (online application available)
  • Valid photo ID (driver's license, state issued ID, passport, etc.)
  • Social security numbers (or alien registration number)
  • Marriage license fee

Fees & Discounts

Florida residents who have completed an approved premarital course will be able to obtain their marriage license with a $32.50 discount. The normal fee for a marriage license is $93.50. After completing the Envision Love premarital course couples will only pay $61.00. To receive this discount, the couple must bring the premarital course certificate of completion with them when they apply for their license. This discount is only valid for Florida residents.

Marriage License Use & Restrictions

The state requires a 3-day waiting period before a marriage license is effective, once it has been requested. However, couples who complete an approved premarital course qualify to skip the waiting period, and may be married on the same day. Non-Florida resident couples do not have a waiting period. In order to waive the waiting period, couples must present the certificate of completion at the time of the marriage license application. Marriage licenses are valid for 60 days from the issue date and must be returned to the clerk's office within 10 days of the marriage ceremony.
