The parents have to appear at the time the minor applies for the marriage license. If the minor receives a license to marry then the ceremony can be done by a judge or magistrate. The licensing clerk can inform the couple of the cost of a civil ceremony.

Can a pregnant 17 year old girl get married without parental consent?

Most parents will consent to marriage if their daughter is pregnant. If this is not the case however you will have to wait until you have you baby. When you have your baby you are automatically emancipated and are considered an adult and then you can get married without consent. You are only medicly emancipated, your parents still have legal control over that. You would have to get a judge to overturn your parents desision which is hard to do.

Can you get married in Kentucky without parents permission?

Depends on your age. If you are 16-17 you need consent of your parents or legal guardian. If you are pregnant and under 18 you can apply to a district court judge for permission to marry without parental consent. Under 16 years old, you must get approval to marry from the District Court. And if your parents or guardians are not residents of Kentucky you as a minor can not get married.

Can you ask a judge for permission to be with a minor?

No you can not ask a judge to be with a minor sexually. Nor can the parents give permission. The minor have to have reached the age of consent, being emancipated or married in order to have sex legally. If this is regarding dating and not sex that is up to the parents. I seriously doubt any judge would go against that.

In TX if you're under 16 you need parental consent and court approval. Good luck convincing a judge that it's in the best interest of a 15-year-old child to get married. Translation--there's a very good chance the judge won't approve it.

Can a 15 year old pregnant get married to a 19 year old without consent?

no, your parents could try to give you consent but most likely it will be brought to court and a judge will have to order the consent. I have a friend that was 17 and his girlfriend was 18 their parents wouldn't consent and the judge made him wait till his 18th birth-day. In your case, if your parents don't press charges for statutory rape you may be able to get married. But since the federal law is 16 and most states are 18 as a legal consenting age you'd be lucky if the state doesn't file the charges against the father.

Can a pregnant 15-year-old get married to a 27-year-old in Minnesota?

In almost any state the 15 year old would have to have their parents written consent and a court order. Pregnant or not.AnswerOnly with the consent of her parent/guardian or the judge of juvenile court. If you ask a judge for consent based on pregnancy...well, do you really want to admit to a judge that you've broken the law? Under Minnesota law, 15 is below the age of sexual consent.
