Before You Get Married – Wedding Information


Do we both have to be present at the Clerk’s Office to apply for a license?

Yes. Both of you must sign the application form and take an oath to the accuracy of the information provided


How much is the license?

The fee for the marriage license is $93.50. This fee is reduced to $61.00 for Florida residents who have completed a premarital preparation course


What do we need to get a marriage license?

Both of you must provide proof of the following:

Where do I get it?

A marriage license may be obtained Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., at any of the  offices of the Clerk of the Circuit Court

Florida marriage licenses are valid for 60 days from the issue date. The marriage ceremony must be performed between the effective date and the expiration date on the license.


Do we have to be from the United States?

No. There is no citizenship or resident requirement.
