A US federal judge wiped away all the confusion. Come 6 January, every single county clerk in Florida must provide marriage certificates to qualified LGBTI couples.
Federal district Judge Robert Hinkle released his decision on 1 January.
In late 2014 August, the judge ruled the southern US state's ban on marriage equality was unconstitutional.
He put a hold on the finding to give the state time to appeal.
In the New Year's Day decree, Hinkle noted Florida had a number of appeals that were denied by higher courts.
