Alabama changed the marriage process in 2019 and the new law took effect August 29. It was a rocky start as nobody really knew what was happening. Now I can honestly say the process is going smoothly and it is actually easier for people to get married.
Click here for the Alabama Marriage Form.
Fill out the form, make sure there are no mistakes, errors and all info is correct. Then print the form and bring it with you on the marriage day. I suggest printing 2 copies just in case. Also bring a $76 money order so I can record the marriage at the Baldwin County Courthouse and have them send you Two Certified Copies.
The form for Certified Copies is Here.
Here are the instructions from the Baldwin County Website about Marriages. Make sure you bring your Driver’s License or Valid Identification so I can notarize your documents.
Florida is still the same. No 3 day waiting period for Out Of State visitors. Both must present themselves at the Courthouse and apply for the marriage license. The other option takes much more time and notarizing forms sending paperwork through the mail. It is more expensive and time consuming. The Florida Marriage license is good for 60 days for marriages performed in Florida.
