In determining the best interests of the minor, the court will consider, without limitation: a) the difference in age between the parties to the prospective marriage; b) the need for the marriage to occur before the minor reaches 18 years of age; and c) the emotional and intellectual maturity of the minor.

Marriage Ceremonies
The person performing the marriage ceremony MUST possess a Certificate of Permission to Perform Marriages in the state of Nevada and be issued by a County Clerk from the State of Nevada.  Most churches and commercial wedding chapels use only authorized ministers or religious officials, but we suggest you confirm that the minister or religious official is properly authorized.  Couples may check the Nevada Marriage Officiant Public Search website.  Select "ALL COUNTIES" before starting your search. If you do not find your Marriage Officiant's name, please call the Marriage License Bureau office at (702) 671-0600.

An out-of-state minister or religious official may obtain permission to perform a single marriage ceremony in the State of Nevada. Please see the Marriage Officiants tab under Clerk Services for information on how to apply for a Certificate of Permission to Perform a Single Marriage Ceremony in Nevada.

Your marriage ceremony may be performed at any wedding chapel, church, the Office of Civil Marriages or anywhere your marriage officiant is willing to perform the marriage ceremony in the State of Nevada.  The expiration date of the marriage license is listed in the upper left-hand corner.  Nevada marriages are legal and recognized all over the world.

WARNING:  An individual going by the name of "Dr. Linda Harvey-Smith" is not authorized to perform marriages in the State of Nevada.  She has performed a number of weddings in recent months and has failed to properly record the marriage certificates.  This creates serious problems for the couples involved.
