Legislation seeking to prevent forced marriage passes

August 17, 2018 at 10:18 AM

From the NZFVC

The Minors (Court Consent to Relationships) Legislation Bill has passed its third reading in Parliament and received Royal Assent.

The purpose of the Minors (Court Consent to Relationships) Legislation Billis to prevent forced marriage. It requires 16 and 17 year olds to apply to the Family Court for approval to marry and makes it illegal to issue a marriage licence to a 16 or 17 year old without the Court’s approval. This replaces the previous requirement for the consent of parents or guardians.
