Family Law Questions? Ask a Family Lawyer Online.
Hello. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am a different JustAnswer.com Family Law professional.
Unfortunately, I do strongly disagree with the answer given by the previous expert, since even in the few states that do permit a pregnant minor under 18 to marry without written parental consent, such marriage license has to be approved by the judge and it is entirely in the judge's discretion whether to approve such marriage.This explains why the previous answer was not backed up by any specific laws or statutes related to the states, which previous expert claims would allow for someone who is pregnant and under 18 to get married without parental consent or court's involvement.
I wish you the best of luck!
