Receivership for person under eighteen who marries without judicial consent

If any person under eighteen (18) years of age marries without the consent required by KRS 402.020(1)(f), the court having general jurisdiction in the county of his residence shall, on the petition of a next friend, commit his estate to a receiver, who, upon giving bond, shall hold his estate and, after deducting a reasonable compensation for his services, pay out the rents and profits to his separate use during his infancy, under the direction of the court. When the person arrives at the age of eighteen (18), the receiver shall deliver his estate to him, unless the court considers it for his benefit to continue it in the hands of the receiver.
