Marriage Permission for Minors
What are the requirements if I or the person that I want to marry is under 18 years of age?
Anyone under 18 wishing to marry must have the approval of your parents and a court order (per FAM 302-304) approving the marriage before you can obtain a marriage license. Trained staff will interview the parents of the underage party and the couple and assess their readiness for marriage. A written report will be sent to the court with recommendations to grant or deny the underage marriage request. It is the Court's decision to grant or deny the request. There is no fee for this service.
