Applicants must be 18 years of age to obtain a marriage license without judicial consent. If either applicant is under
18 years of age (and there are not more than three years difference in age between the applicants), a court order is
required in addition to the written concurrence of his/her father and mother, or the parent having his/her legal
custody, or of the tudor of his/her person. The applications are urged to seek the advice of an attorney, as a court
hearing and judicial interview is required. If either applicant is under 18, the clerk of court cannot under any
circumstance issue a marriage license if there are more than three years difference in age between the applicants.
Per Louisiana law, persons under 16 years of age may not marry under any circumstances, effective August 1, 2019
per Act 401 of the 2019 Legislative Session.
