A request of a minor to marry starts with the minor getting written consent of one or both parent(s) having legal custody or legal guardian, or have a court order if the minor is a ward or dependent in the Juvenile Court.The law previously provided that a child under 16 can request the court approve the marriage under certain circumstances. In 2019, however, this law was amended to prohibit marriage to those who are under 16 years of age.
