If parents shared joint custody and only one parent needed to consent for a minor child to marry could the non consenting parent contest the marriage after it has occurred?

No. If the marriage was legally conducted and the license legally obtained, the other parent can't change it. The key word being "if" a legal marriage occurred. When parents share joint legal custody it means that both parents have the right to make or contest decisions concerning the minor child's welfare. Under such circumstances, a minor child could not be legally married without both parents giving consent to the marriage. If a marriage did occur under such circumstances the non consenting parent would have grounds to contest the act.

Unfortunately, no. If one party to a marriage wants to get a divorce, then it will be granted with or without the consent of the other party. Courts simply will not enforce a situation where it is no longer working for some. You have the right to contest the divorce but declining the divorce will not stop the procedure from happening.

No. She can, however, go before a judge and request to be emancipated without your consent. You can try to contest it, too.

Your wife cannot contest the divorce itself; she can only contest the division of property and assets of the marriage. The divorce case cannot go on forever; there will be a trial and the assets will be divided fairly by the court.

No, the word contest is not an adverb.The word contest is a verb ("we will contest the decision") and a noun ("I entered the contest").

Have you seen the will? Does it say this? You may be able to contest the will depending on the law of your country. Take legal advice. Could be expensive.

The State of Florida is a no-fault divorce state, meaning the court will not assign fault to either party for the divorce. Neither spouse can prevent the other from obtaining a divorce. Marriage is not a prison and an inmate who is incarcerated for life cannot impose a life sentence on their spouse. She/he has the right to move on with their life. The inmate does not have to consent to the divorce.

Freedom to marry whoever you want whenever you want is only conditional on his being married to someone already. The state can not prevent a marriage and you can not contest the marriage on those grounds.
