  • North Dakota marriage North Dakota North Dakota

    I am 16 and the guy is 22. He is originally from the uk and recently had to move back there because he doesn't have permanent residency. I do love this guy BTW so its not like were tricking the state. The easiest way he can get it is if he gets married. I was wondering if anyone knows if wed be able to get married? The law is 16 with consent and both of our parents would consent to it I just don't know if it is possible.

    Not gonna happen. We are now dealing with Federal law and not state law. There is a lot that has to happen before the US will consent to a marriage visa; quite a lot that has to be proven, and the government is simply not going to believe it when a minor is involved.

    This is absolutely a non-starter. NO chance whatsoever. People could go to jail for fraud. Forget you even thought of it.
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

      Agreed. This is not a question of state marriage law; it's a question of federal immigration law. If your boyfriend wants to emigrate to the US, he needs to consult an immigration attorney to determine his best course of action. Marrying a 16-year old isn't it.
      I am not able to respond to private messages. Thanks!

        Agree that his best course of action is to talk to an immigration attorney - he/she can answer any questions he might have & go over his options with him.
        Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia
