Best Answer

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.

No you can not ask a judge to be with a minor sexually. Nor can the parents give permission.

I seriously doubt any judge would go against that.

No, and they will have to have the consent of both parents, not just the girl's parents. In some states they could go before a judge and gets a special waiver to get married. In most cases, she would have to be pregnant in order to get such a waiver and the judge would have to agree that it was in her best interest to be married as a child.
