Question about having marriage license translated

Recommended Posts

For those of you that had a legal wedding in Cabo and got a marriage license that was in Spanish- where did you go to have it translated to English? Also what did it cost?

 

We are planning to have a legal wedding in Cabo so I am trying to figure out what I need to do when I get back!feedback.gif

Depends on your state.

 

I didn't change my name so we didn't have to do anything with the license.

 

If you are changing your name - might want to check with the Social Security bureau on what you need to do.

I just looked in our local yellow pages for a translation company. Also if you go to your local security of state office, (or even look online) they will have a print out of translations offices that they will accept. Be sure to contact your branch office first so you know what they will require to make you name change legal.

Hi - translating the document should be easy and inexpensive regardles of whether you get it translated in Cabo or back home.

 

What you need to find out is whether or not you will need the translated copy to be certified or apostilled as this can only be done where you get married. This service will end up costing anywhere from $80 - $100 (Cabo)...

Our resort did all the translating for us - it was $35 and I showed it yesterday to get a new drivers license, SS card and bank stuff. It worked! So for me, it was the easiest thing just to do it at the resort instead of coming back here to find a translator.

You should call your SS office first. Mine did NOT need to be translated so I just saved the money!

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
