Divorce Papers Translated into Spanish?

Recommended Posts

Our wc says there needs to be a letter from the sec of state translated into spanish. Does anyone know how you do this? The divorce was in California and we live in Georgia now and the wedding is in 1 month!

Well I have no idea why you are required to have the papers translated. But with that in mind you should be able to find a translation office in your area that can translate and certify the divorce papers. I had to do that, because I had a hard time changing my last name because our wedding papers were in spanish.

 

Maybe ask your WC if that would be ok.

I have been told mine have to be translated to but that they can only be done in Mexico and its $50. Check that out because if thats true you won't need to bother the WC at your hotel will sort it for you

For the Canadian brides...

 

I had to find a certified translator (make sure they are certified!) to translate our birth certificates into Spanish (I'm sure it would be the same process for the divorce papers). She had to write and sign an affidavit that she was the one who did the work. She charged $35/birth certificate.

 

Then I had to take her to see our lawyer, where she raised her hand in oath that she did the translation.

 

Then the lawyer notarized the docs--certified copies of the birth certificates and the translations (four docs in total). He charged $20 for all of the docs.

 

Then I had to take the docs to the Mexican Consulate in a nearby city for legalization. They charged $35/doc.

 

Hope this helps!

In MX, each state implements their own requirements as far as civil/legal wedding ceremonies are concerned but it is my understanding this is not required by the local Civil Registry (Registro Civil)...This is actually the first time I've heard of this beign required here in Cabo.

 

The Judge only requires the first and last page of your divorce decree, which should provide the following info; your names, the name of the Judge, his/her signature, and the date the divorce was final.. Are your documents complete and legible?

 

I can check with the Judge directly for all of you and let you know but it won't be until Monday as their offices are closed for Easter Week.

I just heard back from my wc and she said not to worry about getting it translated - I am not sure why it says that on the list of required docs if it is not really required but at least I have one less thing to worry about. I got all worked up for nothing. Thanks for your help girls!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
