They must also be given written, notarized consent by his or her mother, father, or guardian to marry. Furthermore, the minor applicant must submit his or her certified birth certificate as proof of age and relationship to the guardian. Any person under the age of 16 must do the same, as well as receive a court order to marry. All persons involved must appear at the county Recorder’s Office with all described documentation and social security numbers before a license can be issued. Applicants and guardians must also present government issued photo identification.
