Filing for a Marriage License in Florida


Planning to get married in the sunshine state?  With warm weather, palm trees, beaches and a variety of destination cities, Florida is a hot spot for destination and local weddings!  With that in mind, there are different marriage license filing rules based on whether you are a Florida resident or non-resident.


Non-Florida residents do not have a waiting period when applying for a marriage license and will pay over $90 for their license.  Engaged couples who live in Florida have a three day waiting period when filing for a marriage license (which seems really weird right?!).  Florida residents can skip the three day waiting period by completing a premarital counseling course and bringing proof of completion to the county clerk’s office when filing for their marriage license.
