    I read that if you have been divorced, they want you to get these documents notarized and the cost is around $700 CAN! Why is this? Anyone know? I have had everything changed back to my maiden name, how do they know if you have been married before? Is this really neccessary?

      Hi there - yes, there is some paperwork and a certain process you need to go through if you've already been married. I think the cost comes with the document translation. Your travel agent will be the best person to explain all of this to you ... sorry I can't help more!

      Good luck!

        If you have a great travel agent she can take care of this for you - at a lower cost - i believe - well... i mean at least it is worth a shot, right?

        the alternative is getting married here in Canada, then having a symbolic ceremony in Cuba. That is common practice too!

        Good Luck!!!

          My fiance has been married before, and it cost us $400 from the Cuban Consulate in canada to get all the documents ready. Plus the wedding got bumped up another $100 because of paper work or something. It's a royal pain in the @$$!!!!!!

            My fiance has also been married before and after talking to a travel agent yesterday she said she has heard some bad stories of paperwork getting messed up with cuban paper translations for weddings!! :S....so now ive decided to get married at home before we go...its much easier and the paperwork will be in english for the marriage certificate which is better i think :o) id be nervous signing wedding papers in a language i cant read lol...ive heard of some stories on here of people signing papers and then they find out later on that it included a pre-nup!! not for me thanks lol...i think doing the legal part at home is much smarter

              I think that Shelly has the right frame of mind - get legally married here before, and have a symbolic ceremony there...

              good luck!

                We'll be doing ours legally in Cuba. It may be less hassel to do it in Canada beforehand, but I dont want to take away from the whole reason we decided to do it in Cuba. We have all our documents legally translated and notarized. I have copy of the vows, and we'll translate the marriage certificate when its done and confirm that its all legit.

                I think it'll be worth it doing it down there. I hope anyways.

                People only hear about the bad experiences, not the good. I'm sure lots of people have been married there hassle free. Just have to be careful of what you do that's all.
