Requirements

Residency

You cannot be a Florida resident to obtain a Florida marriage license by mail. No minimum residency applies to overseas couples or out of state couples. (i.e. you are not required to be in Florida for a minimum number of days.)

Age

You should be 18 years and older to apply for a marriage license.

Previous Marriages

On the application form you must be able to advise what date you last marriage ended, (written proof may be requested).

The Marriage License

Once issued, the marriage license is valid for 60 days. The Marriage license has to be given to the Notary on your wedding day. The Notary will then be responsible for mailing the Marriage license back to the courthouse to have it recorded. This will become the official Marriage Certificate. This process can take between 4 – 6 weeks and will be mailed back to you directly.

The Marriage Ceremony

Once the Marriage license has been obtained, couples can get married anywhere within the state of Florida. Witnesses to the marriage are not required.

Certified Copies

Should couples wish to have additional certified copies of their Marriage Certificate, they are $2.50 per copy; this money should be given to the Notary on your wedding day. The Notary will enclose the marriage license in the provided envelope, which he/she will return to the courthouse for recording.

 

A Florida Marriage License is only valid for 60 days. If you are applying for a license by mail more than two months out, once the application has been notarized and send back to us we will hold on to the application until about 50 days before your wedding date. We then send the completed application to the courthouse for the final stamped date to be put on your application. We ensure that the 60 days of validation covers your wedding plus a couple of extra days in case a wedding has to be moved due to unforeseen circumstances i.e. weather etc.

The time that the application process takes and the valid time of the wedding license are not connected in anyway. You can do your license application as far out as 6 months.
