Q: Is there a waiting period in the State of Florida for getting married after a couple applies for a Marriage License? Are blood tests required, and do you have to apply in the County you live in? Can a minor apply for a license?
A: Yes and no. There is normally a 3-day waiting period as of January 1, 1999. However, if both parties have taken a 4-hour premarital preparation course given by a minister or counselor registered with the Clerk of the Circuit Court, the waiting period is waived and the license fee is reduced.
· If only one applicant took the course, the waiting period is still required.
· If neither applicant is a Florida resident, the waiting period is not required.
· If one applicant is not a Florida resident, and the other is a Florida resident and has taken the premarital course, the waiting period is still required.
· Blood tests have not been required since this test was abolished October 1, 1986.
· A marriage license may be applied for and solemnized in any Florida county.
· Minors, who under oath, swear that they are parents or expectant parents of a child may apply. In addition, the pregnancy must be verified by a written statement from a licensed physician.
· A previously married minor may also apply.
· A person age 16 or 17 may apply with the consent of both parents or guardian, unless the parents are divorced and only one parent has full custody.
