Marriage Licenses – General Information
For your convenience, D’Arienzo Psychological Group has supplied information here from the Duval County Marriage License website:
In order to obtain a marriage license in Duval County, a couple must apply together, in person, at the Duval County Clerk of Courts office. The marriage license is only good within the State of Florida. Both parties must be present with their State issued ID, military ID, or passport, as well as their Social Security cards.
If either applicant has been married previously, you will need to know the exact date of divorce, death, or annulment. If the marriage ended within the last sixty (60) days, you must bring proof showing how the marriage ended.
Applicants under eighteen (18) years of age must have consent from both parents, unless a Court order has given one parent sole custody, in which case they must have consent from the parent having sole custody. The consent must be provided at the time the application for a marriage license is made. Applicants under sixteen (16) years of age must have court approval, and should contact the Clerk of Court’s office for more information.
The fee for a marriage license is $93.50, and must be paid in cash only. Other forms of payment are not accepted. If both parties have taken a premarital class with a registered premarital course provider, the fee is reduced to $61.00.
Effective January 1st, 1999, there is a three (3) day waiting period for marriage licenses unless a premarital class has been taken from a registered premarital course provider. If both applicants are Non-Florida residents, then this waiting period shall be waived.

When we go through big life changes, anxiety is bound to follow. It is important to focus on the present moment and to focus on what is going on within you. You do not have to change your anxious feelings but acknowledge them. If we pay attention to it, we are decreasing the power that it has over our lives.Learn More
