Domestic Relations (DOM) CHAPTER 14, ARTICLE 3
* § 15-b. Temporary provisions authorizing issuance of marriage
license, upon court order, without consent of a parent in armed forces
of United States, merchant marine and allied forces, and absent from the
United States. Notwithstanding the provisions of section fifteen of this
chapter or any other provision of law, the written consent of a parent
of a minor to the marriage of such minor may be dispensed with by order
of a judge or justice of the supreme court of this state or the county
judge of the county in which the minor resides or, in case the minor be
a woman between fourteen and sixteen years of age, of such a justice of
the supreme court or the county judge or judge of the children's court
of the county in which such woman resides, upon proof satisfactory to
such judge or justice that it is impracticable to require such consent
because such parent is a member of the armed forces of the United
States, merchant marine and allied forces, and is absent from the United
States, and any such judge or justice is hereby authorized to make such
an order if satisfied of the existence of such circumstances and that
the public interest will not be injuriously affected by dispensing with
such consent; provided, however, that no such order shall be granted
except upon application therefor both by the minor whose parent is so
absent and by the other parent, or if the other parent be dead or his or
her consent to such marriage be unnecessary for any reason, then by the
person under whose care or government the minor may be. Upon the filing
of such an order with the town or city clerk, he shall issue the license
without the written consent of the parent whose consent is ordered
dispensed with therein, provided all the other provisions of this
chapter in connection with the issuance of the license are complied
with. The provisions of this section shall remain in force and effect
only until July first, nineteen hundred forty-seven.
