Age Requirements

  • Both applicants must be 16 years of age or older on the proposed date of marriage.
  • If one of both of you are 16 or 17 years old, you will need to obtain written consent from all of your parents who have decision-making responsibility for you (also known as legal custody). 
  • You can either download and complete the Consent of Parents or Guardians to Marriage Form and have all parents swear or affirm it before a Commissioner of Oaths and bring the completed sworn or affirmed form with you when you come to get your marriage licence; or bring all of your parents with you to have the form sworn or affirmed when you pick up your licence.
