Florida Marriage Licenses -
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 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.

For further questions or information, please contact the Clerk of Court where you will be getting your marriage license.
