Hello,

Thank you for your post, however, I am not sure what your legal question is. Are you asking if you can be married by proxy? Where is your GF?

She is in California and I am deployed
Military Lawyer: Marsha411JD, Lawyer replied 1 year ago

Thank you for that information. Marriage by proxy is not technically allowed in California. However, if you execute a specific Power of Attorney (which you can see at the link below, along with the steps that need to be taken) and someone is able and willing to go with your girlfriend to the County Clerk's Office, you could get married that way. (In other words, your POA can stand in as you) Please read the info at this link: https://www.cdph.ca.gov/certlic/birthdeathmar/Pages/MarriageLicenseceremonygeneralinfo.aspx

Please let me know if you need any clarification after reading the information at the link. If none is needed, then if you could take a moment to leave a positive rating in the box above, I will receive credit for assisting you today.

I have read that it is allowed in the state of California as long as one of the members is in the military which i am

supposedly a double proxy marriage can be arranged.
Military Lawyer: Marsha411JD, Lawyer replied 1 year ago

No, it isn't. The link I provided you, which you need to review, is from the State of California. The law does not allow a complete proxy marriage, but does allow the type I described to you in detail for military members. No double proxy allowed in California. Montana is the only state that allows for double proxy and you can Google different companies that will provide that service for you if you choose. They will charge a fee and provide you with the paperwork and stand in as your proxies.

Hello again,

I wanted to touch base with you and make sure that you did not have any further follow up questions for me from the answers and information I provided to you on the 14th. For some reason, the Experts are not always getting replies or ratings (at the top of the question/answer page you are viewing or in the pop up box for this question), which is how we get credit(paid by the Site) for our work, that the customer thinks have gone through. In your case I have not received your rating.

Please keep in mind that I cannot control the law or your circumstances, and am ethically bound to provide you with accurate information based on the facts you give me even if the news is not good. If you are having technical difficulties with reading, replying or rating, please let me know so that I can inform the Site administrator. Please note that Site use works best while using a computer and using either Google Chrome or Firefox.

In any event, it was a pleasure assisting you and I would be glad to attempt to assist you further on this issue, or a new legal issue,if needed. You can bookmark my page at: http://www.justanswer.com/law/expert-marsha411jd/

Thank you.
