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.
My husband and I were interested in taking this course and then came to the conclusion that we didn’t need it right away and that getting married right away was more necessary ( for us ). I bought the course and then emailed Dr. Justin D’Arienzo and told him I didn’t want to do the course right now after I seen the extent of it and asked him for a refund. He told me a refund would be given to me right away. As it was the weekend we didn’t get in into our bank until Tuesday morning but we got it. It wasn’t a headache for me to get which is the last thing we need right now. So thank you for Dr. Justin D’ Arienzo for listening to my needs and not causing me more unnecessary hassle in my life right now. We will take your course as it looks very beneficial to us as a couple and I don’t want to miss out on the knowledge it looks like it gives just because we need to get married right away( for personal reasons). So thank you and we see and appreciate all you do for Texas couples. I recommend anyone who has the time to take this course.
Dr. D' Arienzo is patient, kind, understanding and practical in his approach to patient care. He is skilled in diagnosing and treating a list of issues. From working with children to adult couples and individuals, Dr. D'Arienzo and his staff have my highest endorsement.
