Marriage Licenses

  • To expedite the licensing process, please download the Marriage License Information Sheet (PDF), complete it, and bring it with you to the Marriage License Department.
  • If the parties applying for a Marriage License have children together that were born in the State of Florida they must fill out Form DH743A. This form requires notarization and can be notarized at the Clerk's Office for a fee of $7.00.
  • Both parties must come to the Clerk's office to apply together.
  • Each party must show a valid driver's license, a valid Florida State identification, a valid passport or valid Military identification.
  • Both parties must provide their Social Security numbers.
  • If either party has been previously married, the party must provide the date his or her last marriage ended.
  • Couples who reside in the State need to provide a certificate of completion of a premarital preparation course. If couples do not provide the certificate, the effective date of their license will be delayed three days.
  • Couples are required by law to read a handbook supplied by the Clerk and sign a statement acknowledging that they have read the handbook before applying for the license. This can be done the same day as applying for the license.

Is there a waiting period for issuance of the license?

  • Not for couples who reside in the State of Florida and attend a premarital preparation course. These couples must provide a certificate to the Clerk upon making application. If the couple are state residents and do not attend a premarital preparation course, the effective date of the license is delayed 3 three days. Exceptions to the delayed effective date (3-day delay) are non-Florida residents. For individuals asserting hardship of the wait, a county court judge may waive the delayed effective date for good cause.
