Marriage Licenses

CIVIL CODE ARTICLES 86-93 R.S. 9:201-9:241

CIVIL CODE ARTICLE 89 -- PERSONS OF THE SAME SEX MAY NOT CONTRACT MARRIAGE.

Requirements:
All applicants must have their birth certificates and be at least 18 years of age. If no birth certificate is available, an order by the Judge waiving this requirement must be submitted. Alternatively, a person over 18 may have two people sign an affidavit attesting to the fact that he/she is over 18 and the license may be issued on order of the judge. Use of this affidavit is limited to persons whom you know beyond any reasonable doubt are over 18.

ANYONE UNDER 18 MUST HAVE PARENTS’ CONSENT (Civil Code 97 requires consent of both parties unless on has legal custody. If parents are deceased, we must have consent of tutor or person who has been awarded custody.)

ANYONE UNDER 16 MUST HAVE PARENTS’ CONSENT AND WRITTEN AUTHORIZATION TO MARRY FROM THE JUDGE.


As of September 1, 2006, the fee for Marriage Licenses will be $27.50
