Thank you for the answer! No, I didn't receive the small sheet of paper entitled Vital Statistics, only this Marriage License, completed with 2 more lines when the wedding took place at the court, signed and stamped by the judge and clerks. I also asked for some certified copies of the document (2 s each). What's interesting is that the copies seem more explicit than the original :D

Ala, in FL is it illegal to get a marriage license, have the ceremony and intentionally not file the certificate and let the other party think you are legally married? I posted this question yesterday but no one responded.

I'm not licensed in Florida, so I don't know the answer. But, generally speaking, the person who performs the ceremony is the person who files the marriage certificate with the proper agency. Talk to the person who performed your ceremony and find out what happened.

Thanks for the reply. The lady who preformed the ceremony works at the marriage license bureau. She was planning on filing the certificate, but he insisted on doing it. I have spoken to her and others who say he never mailed the signed paperwork.
