In Kansas, a proxy wedding offers an unconventional solution for couples when one of them is unable to attend the ceremony. Marriage is a great event in anyone’s life; planning and decorating and family, however, unfortunate things can occur in life. Things like one of the partners being imprisoned or hospitalized, someone being on deployment for the military, or maybe the loved one isn’t in the state. So, what do you do in such situations? A proxy wedding is a perfect solution.

A Kansas proxy wedding is a type of wedding ceremony that can be performed when one of the parties cannot attend in-person. The state of Kansas allows proxy representation, where a 3rd party is given legal authority to represent or stand in for someone else. When a couple wishes to be married but one of them cannot attend due to various reasons, a “Single Proxy Marriage” can resolve the issue of distance. Kansas is one of the few states that allows 3rd party representation for marriages and does not place restrictions on residency. Here’s what you need to know about a proxy wedding taking place in Kansas – even if you’re not a resident!

Kansas has specific requirements for a proxy wedding, including the need for an affidavit from the absent party, a proxy’s consent form, and other documentation. A proxy designation must take place, where a proxy is chosen to take the place of one of the wedding party occupants. This designation is a critical aspect of a proxy wedding, and comprehending and documenting it accurately is imperative to ensure the legal integrity of the marriage proceedings. After the initial paperwork has been completed, submitted, and approved, there are requirements the state of Kansas places on a Single Proxy Marriage ceremony; ONE person must physically be present in the state for a minimum of 4 days, and ONE person must physically be present for the ceremony. You can expect the entire process to take 3-6 weeks to complete the paperwork and receive approval. A proxy, non-resident wedding, makes getting married easier for couples separated by Governmental red-tape or long distances. Since the proxy wedding is legally binding and recognized by every state, all branches of the Military, and most countries of the world, it is the perfect solution for all types of US resident and non-resident couples.
