Florida Marriage License Information   Once you have set your date it is time to think about obtaining your Marriage License. You can  obtain a Florida Marriage License in any county courthouse throughout  the State of Florida. The requirements may vary from county to county so it is best to check with the County directly for  their exact requirements. A Florida Marriage License must be used within 60 days of issuance and  can be used in any county in the State of Florida. The fee is $93.50 and is paid directly to the Clerk of Court. If you are getting married in the Tampa, St. Pete, Clearwater, Sarasota  area and wish to obtain your Florida Marriage License from Hillsborough, Pinellas, or Sarasota County, please click on one of the following  links for additional information and requirements: Hillsborough County Marriage License Information Pinellas County Marriage License Information Sarasota  County Marriage License Information Some additional noteworthy information: You do not have to be a resident of Florida  to obtain a Florida Marriage License. Non-Residents can get their  marriage license and get married the same day without a waiting period.  If you are a Florida resident there is a 3 day waiting period before  your license becomes valid unless you have both completed the State  sanctioned marriage preparation course within the last 12 months. If you have been previously married, the  date of your divorce or spouse’s death must be provided when obtaining  your Florida Marriage License. Check with the county for their specific  requirements. Florida requires that you produce a picture  ID and your Social Security Card or valid Passport and typically both of you must be physically present at the time of application. Your Florida Marriage License will need to be presented to your Officiant on the day of your wedding to notarize after your ceremony. The original,  notarized, and witnessed Marriage License (varies per county) must then  be submitted to the County Clerk of Court in which it was obtained to  record. The Clerk will provide you with a certified copy for your  records. If you are a destination bride and unable to visit the courthouse during normal business hours, there is an alternative.  Florida Marriage License Express can obtain your license and send it directly to us prior to the ceremony.
