This page is provided as a guide for Overseas visitors. You should visit the courthouses website for the up-to-date requirements - it is the responsibility of the couple to ensure they have the correct documents to obtain their wedding license. Couples should also allow that the courthouses are only open Mon- Friday, when booking their travel arrangements to allow for time to visit a courthouse prior to your wedding day.

For Non-Florida residents, you now have the option to arrange your Marriage Licence by Mail, prior to your arrival in Florida. This will save you time and worry.

For more information please visit our dedicated web site: Florida Marriage Licenses by Mail (www.floridamarriagelicensebymail.com)

Documentation required by the Courthouse

Couples will require the following necessary documents

Passports

Birth Certificates (either full one or short one - UK couples)

Decree Absolute (if divorced)

And any other relevant paperwork such as change documents (widowers certificate, change of name etc).

Failure to produce correct documentation may result in having to delay the wedding pending the correct documents being presented.

The Marriage Licence

The marriage licence is valid for 60 days from the day of issue. The Marriage licence has to be shown to the Notary or Minister prior to the ceremony, to ensure all legal requirements have been fulfilled. The Notary or Minister will then be responsible for posting the Marriage licence back to the courthouse to have it validated. This will become the official Marriage Certificate. This process should take between 4 – 6 weeks and will be posted directly back to the couple’s home address.

The Marriage Ceremony

Once the Marriage licence 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 the Marriage Certificate, $3.00 per additional copy should be given to the Notary or Minister. The Notary or Minister will enclose the marriage licence in the envelope, which he/she will return to the courthouse for validation.

Don’t forget you can arrange your license by mail. Visit our dedicated web site for more information:
