    Default Can You Get Married if There's a Warrant for Your Arrest

    My question involves marriage law for the State of: Georgia and Alabama

    The father of my children has a warrant for his arrest in Alabama for contempt of nonpayment of child support. He moved to Georgia and is planning on getting married soon. Will the state allow him to apply for a marriage license if he has a warrant?

    Well, I don't mind that he gets married- best of luck to him- but, I just hate that he's getting away with not paying his child support!! 20 grand behind, and he's just care and consequence free.

    Keep CSE informed as to his whereabouts.

    But know that some people are just determined not to pay, right up to the point where they're facing loss of license, tax refund interception, jail, the whole nine yards.

    I'm thinking best of luck to his poor fiancee!

    CSE has his current address, but they can't cross state lines to arrest him unless we start an interstate case. I was told that will take up to a year to establish.

    His fiancée is the reason he gets to sit as free as he is. She works, pays all the bills, and lets him sit at home unemployed. I don't get it, but she says they are happier than they have ever been. One day she'll realize that he's taking her for all she's got, just like he did me.

    Agreed. You're lucky - you're out of the situation now.

    He's her problem.

    But yeah, keep on with CSE. Not as in calling every other day, but maybe once a month to see how things are coming along.

    Call the county clerks office where he lives. Advise them he is coming in for a marriage license and has a warrant.
    With enough thrust, pigs fly just fine.
    You may believe that you understood what you think I said. I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.
