SGOR Brides, A ? About Paperwork

Recommended Posts

I know that all we need to send ahead of time is a notarized copy of our birth certificates and the form that they sent us to fill out. What do they mean by notarized copy? My fiance and I are at odds about what this actually means. I thought all we had to do was take our birth certificate to a notary, they'd copy it and stamp it. He thinks we need to request a copy of our birth certificate, have it mailed to us and then send it on to the wedding planner. Who's right? I really need to get this done ASAP and don't want to do the wrong thing and possibly screw up our wedding!

We are having the same problem. We are getting married at SGOR on August 30th, so we need to send our papers in soon. Someone called me from Sandals the other day to remind me!! I thought we could make a copy and get it notarized, but apparently in NC notaries cannot do this. I think that in some states they can. So we are requesting notarized copies from the states we were born in - South Carolina and Texas. There is an awesome website - VitalChek Express - Birth Certificates, Death Certificates, Marriage Records, Divorce Records and Vital Records where you can request a copy of your birth certificate and you can get a copy back in 14 days. That is what we are doing. Also, I think Sandals does not return the copies of your birth certificate, so you don't want to give them your only copy!

When we did it, the notaries did my husbands and mine two different ways. My notary copied the certified copy of my birth certificate and then wrote a note at the bottom that says, "This is to certify that this is the true and original copy of Gionne Last name's birth certificate." Then he had me sign and date it, then signed it himself and stamped with his notary stamp. My husband's notary just stamped the photocopy of the birth certificate and signed and dated it. We sent those in and everything was fine.

 

So, to me, you are both partly right. You will need a COPY of your original birth certificate and have the copy notarized (signed and stamped) by a notary.

 

We also found that some notaries will refuse to notarize a copy of the birth certificate, which is why my notary made a copy from the original and notarized from there. Hope this helps! I'm interested to hear from others on this.

I was confused about it too and had the same arguement with my husband..lol

I went to the post office and made photocopies of the original and took them to the notary. I then sent the photocopied version in and then emailed Darma and asked her to verify that I did the right thing. She ok everything and there was not problem with it. I got an offical confirmation from Sandas a few days later. They will tell you if you don't have everthing in order but it much more simple then I thought it was going to be..lol

BTW do you all have your passports yet?

Thank you girls for your response! He basically thought we had to request another certified copy from the department of health (or whoever sends them in the first place!) and then send that in! I was convinced we didn't have to go through all of that. He got his copied and notarized yesterday and mine is going to get done today. His mom can notarize things because of her job so that was a huge help!

 

I have my passport already (got in a few years ago) and he is starting the process today. That's why I was in a panic--we needed to get his birth certificate copied before he had to send it away!

 

Thanks for your help cheesy.gif

Mine have to be in by June 12...they should have told you when you set up your wedding date what day your paperwork is due. I think it's 60 days before the wedding, but don't quote me on that!

Jamaicabride09- I have the date of Sept 13th...just wondering if you have the same date?

 

I just recieved my original birth cert, and now I am trying to notarize it...I went to 2 separate places and they wont do it! They said they aren't allowed?? My TA is waiting to hear back from my wedding planner with more details. I was just going to request for another birth cert. but then again I don't feel comfortable sending an original document....

 

Let me know what your TA finds out and I will let you know what mine finds out! I am stressing because I need to apply for my passport! Meanwhile, Mike applied for his passport 4 weeks ago and he hasn't gotten yet so we dont have his birth cert to get notarized.....
