Minor Marriages

Information for a Marriage License

If one or both parties requesting a marriage license are under the age of 18, then a court order and judge/parental consent for the minor must be obtained and filed with the county clerk before a license can be issued. This applies to emancipated minors as well. Minors may only apply for a regular (public) marriage license. For additional information, contact the Kern County Superior Court Family Law Facilitator’s Department or click here.
