The Myth of a Legal Online Marriage
Every day I am contacted by people seeking a “Legal Online Marriage.”
Today’s technology has made it quite easy to order practically anything online. With the decline of the traditional brick and mortar stores, online purchasing has increased dramatically.
Almost every company today has an online presence. What a fast and easy way to purchase things. All it takes are a few clicks online, and the goods arrive at your front door!
I do understand why people think that they can also get married online, since today we can obtain practically everything else online.
No Legal Online Marriage
The truth of this matter is that there is no such thing as a Legally Binding Online Marriage where you can complete an online form, and then someone will mail to you a Legal Marriage Certificate.
In the USA, both marriage licenses and marriage certificates are issued by each state. Most states require that both parties must physically appear before the marriage bureau in order to apply for the marriage license. There are, however, a few exceptions, such as the state of Montana and the state of Kansas.
Montana Double Proxy Marriage
The state of Montana allows a Legal Double Proxy Marriage where neither party has to appear at the marriage bureau. The state does however require that at least one of the parties be ACTIVELY serving in the Military or be a Legal Resident of the state of Montana. Also, both parties must be at least 18 years of age or older.
Kansas Single Proxy Marriage
The state of Kansas is presently the only state that allows a Legal Single Proxy Marriage for both USA and foreign civilians and inmates. There is no residency requirement, and it doesn’t matter where the parties were born or where they presently reside, as long as both parties are 18 years of age or older. For this Legal Single Proxy Marriage, ONE of the parties must appear before the marriage bureau. A very Limited Power of Attorney or Notarized Required Affidavit must be submitted, so the “designated proxy in Kansas can legally stand in for the absent party.
