Marriage Over the Internet
In the age of internet and computer technologies, the
demand for cyber marriages is increasing. A lot of couples
are finding one another over the internet and desire to
solemnize their marriages in the same manner.
However, marriage over the internet is not legally
binding. Proxy marriages are illegal in the State
of California. In order for a marriage to be legal, a
couple has to have a marriage license, which is granted
by legal institutions. In Los Angeles County a few notary
publics are authorized by the County Office of the Registrar/Recorder
to assist with the issuance of marriage licenses.
The same rule applies to weddings over the phone.
Both parties must be present in the same place at the
same time in front of the official.
and other related documentation must be verified prior to license
issuance. Parties must sign their marriage license in the presence
of public official.
CONDUCTED OVER THE PHONE OR OVER THE INTERNET ARE ILLEGAL AND
MAY BE DECLARED INVALID BY THE STATE, LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES,
OR OTHER PARTIES.
Our notary publics are authorized to issue marriage licenses.
Solemnization of the marriage is also available with our non-denominated
ministers. Should you be interested in a religious ceremony,
you may use your marriage license issued through us with the
minister of your choice. If you do not know any ministers,
we will be delighted to refer you to our denominated colleagues.
