Legal Question

Asked on: 7/10/12, 7:37 pm

I have a friend who had sex with a 15 year old, and he was 19. He spent five years and prison and really regrets it. My other friend is dating him and was wondering how long does he have to wait to get married and have children?

Given the limited information provided, it is difficult to fully understand the nature of the new circumstances facing this person. Nevertheless, if the new girlfriend is also underage, the legal age for her to marry in Georgia is 16. This hypothetical is further complicated by the potential for the minor to emancipate herself from her family. There are specific elements required to this to occur by operation of law. For additional, case specific information I suggest you hire a lawyer so that he/she could formally brief this issue with you.

Regards,
