Marriage License Overview

If you plan to receive your marriage license in Clay county, you must:

  • Both be present at the clerk's office
  • Have a valid, government-issued photo ID
  • Know your social security numbers (or have the card)
  • Sign the Premarital Statement Form in front of the deputy clerk
  • File the paperwork at the clerk's office by 4pm in order for it to be completed before the clerk's office closes
  • Pay the marriage license fee

Waiting Period & License Discount

There is a 3-day waiting period before you can use a Florida marriage license to get married. This has been mandated by the state and applies to Florida residents. If both individuals are non-Florida residents, they will not have a waiting period. Couples can skip the waiting period by taking an approved premarital course. The cost for a marriage license, including the state and county fees is $93.50. In addition to skipping the waiting period, Florida residents who complete a marriage prep class will receive a discounted license fee. After the discount, the license fee is $61.00. To skip the waiting period and get a discount on the fee, the couple must both take the class and present the certificates of completion to the county clerk's office during the application process.

Marriage License Use & Restrictions

Marriage licenses are valid for 60 days from the issue date, and must be returned to the clerk's office within 10 days after the marriage is performed. Couples who would like to get married at the St. Lucie county clerk's office are able to do so for an additional fee of $30. Ceremonies are performed Monday through Friday.
