The procedure to be followed for a court marriage is as follows.

Engage a lawyer who would move a joint application for marriage before the marriage officer.

Along with this, individual affidavit specifying the age must be attested by notary public and submitted.

After the time period for receiving objections expires, the date of court marriage can be fixed (if there are no objections made).

On the decided date, both parties along with three witnesses are required to be present.

The already solemnized marriage must be registered under a specific marriage act.
