Fiancee of 17 on travel visa for 3 months in Texas with me (22).His mom has given us consent for marriage and we would like to get a marriage license as soon as possible.Because she is in England, she is not able to sign in front of county clerk like they are requiring.Because he is from England, how do we go about getting a court order?And is a visa faster after marriage or should we try for a fiancee visa?Thank you.

I talked with an immigration and marriage attorney via email

I talked with an immigration and marriage attorney via email that was recommended to me through an ad on the Dallas county clerk office official website.I have just turned 22 and my fiancee is 17 turning 18 later this year. His parents have given him consent to quit schooling in England and move here to be with me because I have cancer and am very sick and need his assistance. We are looking to go get a marriage license as soon as possible in Dallas, Texas, USA.The county clerk website says it is legal with parental consent, but since his mother is in England, I am wondering what kind of documents we would need from her. Letter? Email? Does it need to be notarized? I attempted to email and call the office but no reply.The attorneys I DID TALK TO told me he does not need parental consent at 17.Both attorneys told me this and I would like to know because of my illness, I faint even from leaving the house for long and if we make the trip to the office to get the license, and are told differently, it would be very hard on my weak body.I hope I worded this well. The websites all say age of consent for marriage is 18 in Texas ( not needing parental consent)So why did these attorneys tell me 17 years of age?If it is 17, please let me know.If not, please let me know if we need an email, letter, or please say the kind of document and stating what, for his mother to send us. And whether or not it needs to be notarized. Thank you so much! Have an amazing day!

I have a question about a recent marriage (yesterday) in

I have a question about a recent marriage (yesterday) in Maryland. The officiant mailed out the certificate but it has yet to reach the courts. Is there any way to reverse this as I am now having second thoughts.JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: MarylandJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Nothing has been reported yet. The document has been signed by the officiant and mailed in.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Yes. I was not present for the obtaining of the marriage license. My spouse went and applied for it without me. And I remember her telling me that because I was not present, the license is only good for 2 weeks. Is that accurate? And if so will the marriage even be valid as the ceremony took place over two weeks later

I filed for divorce in 1993/1994. I re-married in 2013. We are foster parents since 2012. We are now in the process of adopting our foster son. The Social Worker asked for my previous divorce decree. I went to LA County Archives to find out my divorce was not granted in 1994. I printed my Archive copy of my proceedings and located a form that indicated some forms were been returned to me for lack of form 1292. In researching said form it is a Declaration Of Disclosure which states DO NOT FILE WITH THE COURT. Both my Ex and myself have been remarried. I need help!!!!JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Los Angeles, CAJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: All the initial request were filed with the courts. Nothing has been filed recently. Again, I just found out that the Divorce was not finalized when search for the Judgement for said Adoption. I was very young when divorce was entered and assumed it was over. I hired a paralegal for proceedings and never made any court appearances.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Well I was really trying to figure out the procedures of filing for a Nunc Pro Tunc Order with hopes that both our current marriages are valid and to finalize Divorce

My father is 70 years old. when he was in his 40s he got

my father is 70 years old. when he was in his 40s he got married to someone. they had a court marriage and have a marriage certificate in New York. Since then that woman and my father have been estranged. They don't talk and my father has no idea where she lives or even how to find her or anything. He is not with another woman he would like to get married to. They would like to get married in the state of North Carolina as that is where they now live. Is my father able to go to court and get married to this lady he is now with and get a marriage certificate without any problem? Do the courts check to see if you have had any prior marriages in another state etc?

Me and my wife got married in Cyprus. On the marriage

Me and my wife got married in Cyprus. On the marriage lisense / Certificate they put my wife's first name and last name as per her passport. My wife who is a US citizen went back to the states and decided to do a name change for both her first name and last name (to my last name). Her court date to get it approved with the judge is next month. After she gets both her names approved, can she change her first and last name on the marriage certificate to her new ones in the states? My only concern is that i dont want us to go all the way back to Cyprus to change the marriage lisense.
