Yes. To obtain a marriage license both parties need to come in person to the Clerk's office, at 201 East University Avenue, Gainesville, Florida, bring their Valid Photo Identification, provide their social security numbers (Or Valid Passport) and pay the marriage license fee. In addition, if either party has previously been married, they must supply the date and reason that marriage ended. Each person applying for a marriage license must also read the "Family Law Handbook". This is required by law.
The State of Florida requires both parties to complete form "AFFIRMATION OF COMMON CHILD(REN) BORN IN FLORIDA" under oath when applying for a marriage license if the following applies to you. If you are the parents of a child born in this state you are required to identify any such child you have in common by name, date of birth, place of birth. The State form will be made available to you when you come into our office for your license.
