Court Marriage

Court Marriages in India are different than the traditional marriages as they take place in court in the presence of a marriage officer without following the traditions in a customary marriage. Court Marriage is the solemnization of marriage between a male and a female who are eligible to marry without any bar to their caste, religion, or creed in front of a court, a marriage officer and in the presence of three witnesses. You don’t need a customary celebration to solemnize your wedding in case of Court Marriage in India.

The only condition is, it should satisfy the essentials of the Special Marriage Act, 1954. It is not necessary for Court Marriage that both parties be of Indian nationality. Court Marriage can be done by an Indian national with a foreign national. Persons of two different gender either belonging to the same or different religion can marry each other through Court Marriage.

You need certain documents for completing the legal marriage process in court. Without these documents, the solemnization of the marriage process in India is not possible.
