If both the student and spouse/partner are unable to physically come into our office together because residence is outside of Gainesville, the student will need to submit the Client Intake Form and then mail to our address or scan and email to firstname.lastname@example.org, copies of all required documentation and also a passport-sized photo of the spouse/partner (if emailed, it must be in a JPEG format). Domestic partners must mail the original, notarized Affidavit to our office. The student or spouse will need to call us at (352) 392-5297 and give the spouse/partner's social security number to one of our attorneys who will process the Gator One card information. Once we have processed the information we will forward it to the Gator 1 office to produce the card. At that point, please contact them directly for status of the request. The Gator 1 ID Card office can be contacted at (352) 392-8343. In order to qualify for remote status, the student and spouse must provide proof that they are unable to come to the office to obtain the Gator 1 card.
