Amelia Island, Florida Marriage Licenses
Getting married on Amelia Island does require a marriage license that can be obtained from the Nassau County Clerk of Courts. Don’t let these important details and requirements go unattended when planning for your big day!
To obtain a marriage license, the bride and groom must both be 18 years or older and visit the Nassau County Clerk's office together and bring their driver’s license and Social Security Number (you don’t need to bring your social security card, just the number). Non-U.S. Citizens may submit a naturalization number, immigration number or passport number. The process for obtaining a marriage license normally takes no more than 30 minutes. When the application is filed, the license is issued immediately.For Florida residents who file certification that they both have completed a state-sanctioned marriage preparation course within the past 12 months, there is no waiting period. For Florida residents who have not taken the course, there is a full three-day waiting period between issuance of the license and the time it becomes valid for use. The waiting period does not apply to nonresidents of Florida. If one party is a resident of Florida and the other party is a nonresident the three-day waiting period is waived only if the Florida resident takes the state-sanctioned marriage preparation course, but no discount is given.A Florida marriage license is valid for 60 days from date of validity. The marriage license must be returned to the clerk's office for recording within 10 days after the marriage is performed. The fee for a marriage license is $93.50 USD. If the referenced marriage preparation course is completed by both parties, the fee is $61.00 USD. Payments are accepted in the form of cash, check, money order or credit card.
