Do you have a loved one in a Correctional Institution such as Lansing, Leavenworth, or out of state? Is your fiance deployed overseas? Do you have a sincere desire to be married and have found yourself exhausted from the search to find a qualified Minister to officiate your wedding? You have come to the right place. I can help you in the States of Kansas or Missouri by performing a Proxy Wedding.
What is a Proxy Wedding?
A proxy wedding is when one or both of the individuals being united are not physically present, usually represented by a stand in, a proxy.
State of Kansas, only one person is required to appear at the Courthouse to obtain the marriage license. THERE IS A THREE DAY WAITING PERIOD. For example, you apply on Friday and can pick up the license on Monday. Once you have the license in hand, you are ready to make it legal! We will gather together with two witnesses and the Proxy and have a wedding celebration. My husband has served as a Proxy many times, however you can choose anyone that you like to serve as a stand in.
State of Missouri, Missouri requires a special Affidavit signed and Notarized by the absent party and a third party who can attest to the reason for the absence. You can find the Affidavit here. You will use this Affidavit to obtain the Marriage License. There is no waiting period in the State of Missouri. You can walk in with this Affidavit and walk out with the license in about 10 minutes! You can get married immediately.
A Proxy wedding may not be the wedding of your dreams, but it will get you what you need until you can be together and plan a more traditional vow renewal or celebration of your love.
Please contact me today for more details. My fee for a Proxy Wedding is $200.00. If necessary, I can usually find Witnesses and a Proxy but I request that you pay them $20 each for their time.
