How to get Married in Florida?
Before you begin your online Premarital Course Certification it is important that you review the following requirements to find if you are eligible to attain your marriage license in the State of Florida.
Couples are required to take a premarital course before applying for their marriage license. This will help the participating parties prepare for marriage and help avoid the pitfalls of divorce. This course will give the couple a discount on their Florida marriage license and eliminate the customary 3-day waiting period.
Once the participating parties are ready to apply for the marriage license, it is important that they make sure that they have proof of identity, age, and residency. Both individuals must be at least 18 years old and show some form of identification (state driver's license, state ID or passport).
Check the county's website and find out if there are any other requirements that are not specified in this list.
Several counties have an online application for a marriage license. If it is not shown in the information that we have compiled for each county, it's likely it is not available. If it is available, you can get a head start on the application process.
Both parties must be present to receive their marriage license. Plan a date and time that you can both commit to going to the nearest location where marriage licenses are authorized. Search for your county below to see one of the locations. Check the county website for additional locations.
Now you're ready to apply for a marriage license! As long as you meet the criteria involved, you should be granted a marriage license in the county that you apply for. You do not need to live in the county to receive a marriage license there. Remember that marriage licenses are only valid for 90 days.
