Florida Wedding License Laws
To apply for a license, partners must be at least 18 years old and appear in person, together, and provide a picture ID, such as a driver's license or passport. If either party was previously married, he or she must provide the date, county, and state or country in which the divorce, dissolution or annulment was finalized.
Marriage licenses must be issued by the Clerk of Courts in any Florida county; licenses from other states will not be honored. There is no waiting period for out-of-state residents. There is a three-day waiting period for Florida residents only, but that waiting period can be waived in some counties if couples complete a premarital counseling course. No blood tests are required. Some counties offer a discount in the marriage license fee if the premarital counseling course is completed. Couples must present proof that the premarital course has been successfully completed at the time of applying for their marriage license.
