MARRIAGE LICENSE FEE:  $93.50 (not included in our services). Payment may be made to the Clerk of Court by cash, money order, personal check or credit card (there is a $2.50 additional service charge for payment by credit card).

BUSINESS HOURS:  All clerk's offices are closed weekends and holidays and the office hours vary from 8 AM to 4:30 PM. You must arrive before 4 PM to have your marriage license processed that day.

A FLORIDA marriage license is required for ALL marriages performed in the State of Florida and is good anywhere in the State, regardless of the county issuing the license. Marriage licenses must be applied for in person with BOTH the prospective bride AND groom present. Applicants must be 18 years of age or older and provide the office with identification containing a photograph and birth date. One (1) identification is required with the applicant's picture, signature, and birth date. Driver's License, Passport, Military ID, Alien Registration Card, and State of Florida ID are acceptable. Those who are not U.S. citizens and/or have no Social Security number may provide an Alien Registration Card, Passport or any other form of acceptable government issued photo ID. There is no residence or citizenship status requirement. A blood test is no longer required, and the marriage license is valid for sixty (60) days anywhere in the State of Florida.

If either applicant has been previously married, he/she MUST provide the Clerk the DATE his/her last marriage ended by death, divorce or annulment.  If that marriage ended within the last sixty (60) days, he/she must also bring proof showing how the marriage ended.  (If it ended more than 60 days ago, proof is not required.)

WAITING PERIOD: 

  • Non-Florida Residents: As long as NEITHER the prospective bride nor groom is a Florida resident, there is NO WAITING PERIOD.  The premarital preparation course is NOT offered to NON-residents.
     

  • Florida Residents: Effective January 1, 1999, if a couple has not completed a premarital preparation course from a qualified course provider, the effective date of the marriage license will be delayed three (3) days from the date of application.  Those couples who have completed a course will have the fee reduced by $32.50 and will have no waiting period to get married. 

MARRIAGE LICENSE DOWNLOADS TO SPEED THINGS UP
 (PDF Format)

newlyweds on beachThe Family/Marriage Law Handbook is required by the State of Florida to be read by all marriage license applicants before the marriage license is issued. To speed things up, read it online by clicking on the following link: Marriage Preparation and Preservation Act - Family Law Handbook.

After reading the Family Law Handbook, print and complete (but don't sign yet) the following application and receipt: Application for Marriage License and Statement Attesting to Completion of Family Law Handbook
Then present the completed application at the marriage license desk, where both of you will then be asked to sign the document in front of the deputy clerk, present your photo ID and pay the fee. Following these suggestions should have you in and out of the marriage license office in just minutes.

ONLINE MARRIAGE LICENSE APPLICATION:  Many Clerks of Court provide an online application on their website. Check the website of the Clerk of Court where you intend to get your marriage license.  For the Daytona Beach, Ormond Beach, Ponce Inlet, New Smyrna Beach and other areas in Volusia County, click here to apply online: http://www.clerk.org/info/eMarriage_instr.html. (You both will still need to go to the Clerk's office to show your ID's, pay the $93.50 fee and pick up your marriage license.)

FLORIDA MARRIAGE LICENSE BY MAIL:
If you are NOT a resident of Florida and cannot arrange to go in person to a Florida Clerk of Court during normal business hours Monday through Friday to apply for your marriage license, you can apply for it by mail.  It normally takes about 60 days and is more expensive.  Click the following link for more information: Florida Marriage License by Mail.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

How long is the license valid?  The marriage license is valid for 60 days and the marriage may take place anywhere in the State of Florida. The marriage license form must be returned to the Clerk's Office for recording by the person performing the marriage within ten days after the marriage is performed. A copy will be provided.

May I apply if I am under the age of 18?  If either the prospective bride OR groom is under the age of 18, the Clerk's Office is authorized to issue a marriage license if one of the following conditions is met:

  • The prospective bride or groom under the age of 18 has a written consent from his or her parents or guardian;

  • If the minor applicant has been married previously, the Clerk's office will issue a marriage license provided the applicants furnish documentation evidencing the prior marriage and divorce.

  • A County Judge is authorized to issue a marriage license to any applicant under the age of 18, if one of the following conditions are met:

    • Both applicants swear under oath that they are the parents of a child;

    • The female applicant is pregnant and this fact is verified by a licensed physician’s   written statement and both parties swear under oath that they are the expectant parents of a child.

    • The Clerk's Office will schedule a hearing, if necessary, with a County Court Judge who will then decide to issue or deny the license based upon the circumstances of the application and the accompanying documentation. A fee of $94.00 is required. If the judge denies the request, $94.00 is refundable.

Correcting an error on your license:  When your marriage license is issued you are asked to look it over and verify that all the information is correct. Later, if a change needs to be made, and the license has been sent to the Bureau of Vital Statistics, an Amended Marriage License is issued at no charge.

Can I get a copy of my license?  Marriage records date back to 1855 in Volusia County. For our search, we will need the names of the bride and groom, and the year that the marriage took place. Search fee is $1.00 per name per year. Certified copies are $2.50 each.
