Impact Family is registered (Search: HAKIMIAN, JACK) with Broward County as a Pre-Marital Course Provider. Our registration allows couples to bypass the three-day waiting period and receive a discount on their license fees.
Both parties, age 18 and over, must be present during the application process for a marriage license.
The state of Florida allows couples to get married anywhere in Florida, regardless of the country that the license is issued. If you are getting married outside of Florida, you must obtain a marriage license from the state where you opt to be married.
Florida residents have the option to attend a premarital course from a registered provider or wait a three-day mandatory time before the marriage license becomes valid. Non-Florida residents are exempt from any marriage license waiting period. Learn more about our Pre-Engagement and Pre-Marital Counseling here.
Marriage License Identification requirements:
