No. One payment allows both of you to use the course. If your fiancé is in a different location from you, you can give them the entry code once you receive it from us. Payment is accepted online through our website, or you may call our office during normal business hours (Monday – Friday, 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM, EST) and pay by credit card.
You do not need a PayPal account to purchase the course through our website. You would need to fill out all of your payment information where it says “Pay with a debit or credit card, or Bill Me Later.” See photo below:
You should receive 2 automatic emails immediately after purchasing the course. One email is a receipt from PayPal and the other is from our office with instructions on how to access the course and your password. If you did not receive any emails, then you may have provided an inaccurate email address when purchasing and will need to notify our office during regular business hours (Monday – Friday, 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM, EST) so we can send it to the correct email. If you received the receipt from PayPal ONLY, that means the second email was forwarded to your Spam or Junk folder. Please check those folders to obtain the email with instructions. If you still can’t find it, please contact our office during regular business hours (Monday – Friday, 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM, EST) for assistance.
Once you complete the course and submit the quiz electronically, we will receive notification that you have completed the course. If it is submitted Monday – Friday, between 9:00 AM – 3:30 PM, EST, please allow up to one hour to receive your certificate of completion by email. Please keep in mind that certificates will not be emailed on days that our office is closed (weekends, holidays). If you finish and submit the quiz after 3:30 PM during the week, over the weekend, or on a holiday, certificates of completion will be emailed or mailed between 9:30-11:30 AM the next business morning. You may call our office ahead of time if you have any questions and/or to verify any office closures. We STRONGLY encourage that you do not wait until the last minute to complete the course.
If you plan to obtain your marriage license in one of the following counties, these counties require an original certificate of completion, which must be mailed to you. These counties include Alachua, Bradford, Desoto, Dixie, Flagler, Gulf, Hernando, Highlands, Leon, Levy, Monroe, Nassau, Okaloosa, Okeechobee, Pasco, Polk, Putnam, Seminole, and Taylor Counties. Please allow an additional business day or two to receive your certificate by mail.
The certificate is valid for one year from the date it is issued.
Florida statutes require that you spend a minimum of four hours on the premarital course. Every premarital course offered anywhere in Florida will require the same four hour minimum. The course material should take approximately two hours to read through. The rest of the time should be spent completing the activities together.
The course is structured to take four hours to complete, including all of the activities and exercises. In the event you complete the course in less than four hours, please re-review the materials that were most significant to you and your relationship. Again, Florida Statutes requires that you spend four hours on the course – these are not our rules and all approved providers must adhere.
No. The course is self-paced so you can log in and log out at your convenience. Just make sure to track your time and spend at least four hours working on the course materials.
We understand that some couples live far away from one another or may have conflicting work/school schedules that make it difficult for both parties to sit down and work on the course together. You may take the course at your own pace (separately OR together). If you want both names to be on the same certificate of completion then I would recommend only submitting one final quiz after you both have finished working on it and stating that “Spouse 1 & Spouse 2 completed together” when asked who completed the course.
The counties listed on my website are the counties in which I am registered. If you are still unsure, you may call the Clerk of Court where you intend to obtain a marriage license to verify. I would be listed under “Dr. Justin D’Arienzo” or “D’Arienzo Psychological Group”. Please keep in mind that if you call the Clerk’s office and they cannot find me listed as an authorized provider, it is because the office is not looking it up correctly or not checking properly. I have verification from all of the counties that I received approval from in my office, so there will be no issues when you go to obtain your marriage license. Also of note, please do not rely on the Clerk of Courts website, as those websites are not updated regularly.
Yes, if it is done by an authorized provider and meets the requirements of the law.
You have 2 options:
1.) When you click on the link from our course after someone has already completed the personality test, it will probably bring you to the test taker’s KTS-II History. On that page there is an option to “Retake the KTS-II” which is located right above the gray summary box. Clicking this option will allow the next person to take the test as well.
2.) Take the test using different internet browsers: If one person takes the test using Internet Explorer, the next can take the test using Chrome, Firefox, Safari or browser of choice. If using the same browser, go into browser settings and delete cookies after the first person takes their test. Click here to learn more about deleting cookies.
