What is needed to get a marriage license?
  • Applicants must appear in person to the Clerk's office, with a valid photo identification (driver's license or other Government issued I.D.).
  • Marriage licenses are $86.00; if a premarital course is completed through a provider registered with the Citrus County Clerk of the Circuit Court and Comptroller the fee is reduced to $61.00.  Proof of successful completion of the course is required at the time of application.
  • If the applicants have minor children together, born in the state of Florida, an Affirmation of Common Children form must be completed.  A $7.00 fee is required for this form.
  • Applicants must provide a Social Security number. Applicants who are not citizens may provide an immigration registration card, passport or other Government issued I.D.
  • Applicants are required to read the family law handbook and once completed sign an affidavit to that effect. F.S. 741.04(B).
