Florida Law

Whether in person or online, Florida law requires that you spend a minimum of four hours on the premarital course in order to receive a certificate. Every single provider must abide by this law. Typically, the Clerk of the Court will have you attest that you spent the required time on the course.


Once your payment is processed, you can immediately download a PDF with the course information. Once the download is complete, you can begin the course immediately. If your partner is in another state or country, you may send a copy of the PDF to them.

Note: You only need to pay for ONE download.


After completing the course use the links provided in the PDF download to take a quiz. In order for both your name and your partners name to appear on the certificate, each of you must take the quiz.
