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 fiance and I took the premarital course offered by Dr. D'Arienzo and I cannot shut up about it! I went into the course with low expectations, but was pleasantly surprised at how helpful the resources were! The things that we have both learned in this course have helped us to understand each other better and prepared us to manage conflict more effectively.
I highly recommend this course to every couple that plans to go to the altar! This will be especially helpful for those that already cohabitate, as this course will give "faces and names" to many issues that all couples face.
We started utilizing D'Arienzo Psychological Group during our management hiring process. Dr. D has utilized industrial assessments built specifically for certain skill sets. We then use his feedback to better build our team and put each manager in a position to succeed. It has helped increase productivity and minimize turnover and attrition.
Dr. D'Arienzo, Jacksonville Psychologist, facilitated an excellent professional develop workshop last week with the Myers Briggs (MBTI) for our faculty and administrators. We are looking forward to his next professional development training session with us! I would highly recommend him to any organization wanting this training.
Online course was very informative and an easy read!! Would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to complete a pre-marriage counseling course. Also included very helpful links to other sites and tests that are quite interesting as well.
