  • Requirements for Minors 16 or 17 years old (one or both applicants) (f.s. 741.0405(1))All of the following are required:
    One of the forms of identification listed above;Certified copy of Minor's birth certificate showing parent's names; and
    A parental consent form may be obtained at the time of application. Both parents/legal guardians must be present with their own identification on hand. If one parent is deceased, a certified copy of the death certificate must be presented, and the surviving parent must be present with his/her own identification. If a legal guardian has been appointed, a court certified copy must be presented.

  • part 2: Exceptions will be if the parents are divorced and one parent has sole legal custody of the minor child. In this case, a court certified copy of the custody document must be presented and only the consent of the custodial parent will be required. If both parents are deceased, and a guardian has not been appointed by the court, the minor must present certified copies of both death certificates.
    If full parental consent is unobtainable, judicial review is mandatory.
    Any application may be submitted for judicial review.

  • idk if the laws are the same but here in nebraska you have to be 19 to get married without your parents signing even if you are expecting. I tried but my mom wouldn't budge. heck i couldnt even open my sons bank account without her signing because i wasnt 19 yet

  • You are 17 years old. I know you are expecting but don't jump into that. I got married at 18 and wish I hadn't of even tho we have a baby together. You can call the courthouse in your area and they can tell you but take my advice and slow down.
