On receipt of your application form and payment, we'll process your application directly with the courthouse. This can take up to 5 days as the form have to be physically mailed to the courthouse with a covering check and then they have to work on it.
The courthouse will type up your wedding license based on your wedding application form and will email it to us. We will then email it to you enclosing the wedding license, pre-marital statement, Florida handbook, and a letter detailing the next steps to be taken. Please follow the steps in our instruction letter VERY carefully.
You should now arrange as a couple to meet with a local Notary service, to have the wedding license notarized (boxes 9 - 16 only) as per the steps detailed in our correspondence. (this is performed where you live) This is not your wedding officiant
The wedding license (two copies) and pre-marital statement should be returned to us at the address given in our letter ( must be the original notarized copies). You should enclose a note stating where you want your wedding license sent back to once the final steps have been taken by the courthouse. Options include - back to your home address (US only), to your officiant, or your wedding location.
Approximately 50 days prior to the wedding (if not within this time) we arrange to send your wedding license and Florida Marriage Statement to the courthouse for its final issue date – this will make it valid for your wedding day. Again this can take up to 5 days to get back to us because we have to physically mail the documents to the courthouse so they can put their final issue date on the license.
Once we get your completed wedding license back from the courthouse – it will be mailed back to the address listed on your note (see step 5), if time permits. If not we will request a Florida address from you. Please note all licenses are sent by regular mail. If you want it sent by FED EX, click here to make payment. International couples – will need to provide a Florida address for it to be mailed to.
