You don't have to notify the state of your marriage. You can use your temporary certificate or you can wait until you get your official license in the mail to change your impt documents, such as your drivers license & social security card.

Because I really don't use my credit cards, I was able to use my temporary certificate as proof as marriage & change my names on those. But you'll need the official license to change your drivers license, bank accounts & social security cards.

Do you mean how to document your name change for tax purposes? I think that changing your name on your SSC and at your job so that your name is correct on your W-2 would suffice. At least I hope so, since that is all that I did!

Marriages in Jamaica are legal in the US. There's no need to register your marriage in the city/state. Your marriage is recorded in Jamaica.

To help set your mind at ease, you could always have a civil ceremony here in the U.S. either before or after your Jamaican wedding to make sure all your bases are covered. We had a civil ceremony here before our actual wedding because DH lost his job and needed to be on my insurance ASAP. When we got our marriage license in PA, the clerk acted like she'd never heard of anyone having a marriage ceremony in Jamaica!

Just need a bit of clarification...

 

So the actual paper you take home with you from RIU stating 'certified copy of marriage register' will be ok to change you name at SS office? or do I need to wait 6-8 weeks to get the official copy from RIU mailed to me before I attempt to change my name?

 

Thanks!

Just to be on the safe side, I'd wait to get the official copy from Riu. I waited until I got the official copy before I changed my name on my SS card. But, if your local SS office isn't very crowded & the lines aren't extremely long, you can always go & try to use the certified copy that you already have. Maybe they will allow that. But then again, they may want the official copy because it has the seal.

    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
