Applying for a marriage license can be a time consuming process, so on January 6, 2015 the Wakulla County Clerk’s office will begin offering appointments for those who wish to apply for marriage licenses. Walk-ins will be accepted on a first come first basis. Always remember that we are a small office and cannot guarantee immediate service, but those with appointments will have priority and should not have a significant wait time.
Appointments will start at 10 a.m. Due to time constraints and our office hours, the last appointment time of the day will be 4 p.m. To request an appointment time, please call Donna at 850-926-0326.
Also, to reduce the amount of time you spend at the Courthouse you may pre-submit your information for the application by clicking here to complete the forms on-line. You will be assigned an identifying number by the system which you will need to bring in when you appear at the Courthouse.
Same Sex Marriage Statement
On January 1, 2015 Federal Judge Robert Hinkle issued a clarification ruling to his previous order on the subject of same sex marriage. As a result of that clarification and on the advice of our attorneys, the Wakulla County Clerk’s office will follow the law and issue marriage license to all legal applicants, including same-sex applicants.
This application process will start at the opening of business on January 6, 2015, per the judge’s order. Because of the complex legal nature of the ruling and ongoing appeals to higher courts, this legal position could change. Any changes or updates will be posted here.
Your patience is appreciated and please see our web page (link here) for requirements including waiting periods and fees for more information.
As of the beginning of the new budget year, October 1st, 2014,the Wakulla County Clerk’s Office will no longer perform wedding ceremonies. Our office will continue to issue marriage licenses per Florida Statutes.
