Opposition to the solemnization of a marriage

If you, or your intended spouse, do not meet the conditions for marriage, any person may oppose the solemnization of your marriage.

This means that the person may, after seeing your notice of marriage, ask the court to prohibit its solemnization.

Who can oppose solemnization?

Any interested person may oppose the solemnization of your marriage, including your child, without assistance from an adult.

Filing of opposition

A person who wishes to oppose the solemnization of a marriage must file an opposition at the office of the Superior Court.

However, at least 5 days before filing the opposition with the court, the person must notify you, your intended spouse, the officiant and, if either intended spouse is a minor, that spouse’s parents or tutor.

The filing of the opposition may lead to a postponement of the ceremony.

The opposition will not be admitted if it is abusive.
