UNDERAGE MARRIAGE COUNSELING

UNDERAGE MARRIAGE COUNSELING

 

Pursuant to the California Family Code before a minor can get a court order granting permission to marry the Court shall require the minor, the minorís selected marriage partner and the minorís parent(s) to participate in pre-marital counseling concerning social, economic and personal issues. The parties must first go to the office of the Siskiyou County Clerk to obtain the necessary paperwork to bring to the counseling session. The counseling is done by a Mediator at Family Court Services. There is a $75.00 fee that must be paid at the office of Family Court Services prior to the session. Sessions are done by appointment only. Any potential marriage partner to the minor is required to bring valid picture identification, such as a driverís license, verifying that they are over the age of eighteen. The session takes approximately thirty to sixty minutes. At the end of the session the Mediator will sign the appropriate paperwork either recommending for or against the marriage. You will then need to get the signature of one of the Superior Court Judges on the form. Ultimately you will return the signed form to the office of the County Clerk for the issuance of the marriage license.
