Minors Requesting a Marriage License

A minor must obtain consent from a parent or legal guardian. A parent or legal guardian must give sworn consent in person at the time of application and must have proper identification. If the parents of the minor are divorced, consent shall be given by the parent having legal custody of the minor by presenting court documentation and an oath of affirmation to the clerk. If the parents of the minor are divorced and have been awarded joint custody of the minor, consent shall be given by the parent having physical custody of the minor the majority of the time as evidenced by an oath of affirmation to the clerk. If the minor is not in the custody of a parent, the legal guardian shall provide the consent and proof of guardianship by court order as well as an oath of affirmation. A certified birth certificate of the minor must also be provided.

Individuals who are 16 or 17 years of age requesting a marriage license must provide a certified birth certificate, have parental consent, and appear in the Clerk’s Office to obtain paperwork that will be taken to the Juvenile Court. They must obtain written authorization from a Judge of the court exercising juvenile jurisdiction in the County where they reside. NOTE: There may not be more than 7 years in age difference between spouses. The judge or court commissioner may require that both parties to the marriage, complete premarital counseling. This requirement may be waived if premarital counseling is not reasonably available.

A marriage license may be issued at the age of 18 years or above without parental consent. Individuals requesting a marriage license must provide one of the following: a valid drivers’ license, identification card or passport.
