Translation of documents - HELP!

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know how to go about getting these translations?? I don't even know what a declaration of single status is...?? It's required for a civil ceremony at the Majestic Elegance. Do all resorts require this?

 

 

Photocopy of birth certificate and translation into Spanish

Photocopy of passport of the couple and of the witnesses *

Declaration of single status, translated into Spanish and notarized

Original divorce decree translated into Spanish and legalized

 

Documents need to be translated and legalized by the Dominican embassy,

*Passports donâ€t need to be legalized or translated. Just copy of them are needed

 

Please help! Thank you! what.gif

Yes...unfortunately all resorts require this!!
You can contact the Dominican consulate closest to you for instructions!
If it's close enough that you can go there personally, then it is best to do that. You can leave with all the docs you need in your hand!! At least that's what we can do here in Toronto!
I've heard that using the services like "we do" is not a good idea...but I can't really remember why!! But I think lots of people do!!

Just another option to save money and the hassle. Try to consider going to your courthouse and have a civil ceremony before you leave for your wedding ceremony in the Dominican Republic. It is much cheaper because if you send your documents to the consulate or WEDO, you will have to pay for each document to be translated. Oh yeah don't forget, when you recieve your marriage license from the DR that will have to be translated into english and that will cost also. Just something to consider.

I know laws vary from state to state, but in SC, a Notary Public can marry you - so since we have a friend who is a Notary, she met us at a friends house and all we did - literally - was sign the marriage license. No vows, etc - so our DR was our only "wedding" and we are so glad we did it that way in order to avoid the translation hassles and extra money for the legal ceremony in the DR - not to mention the waiting period upon our return home. We only had 30 days to add me to DH's insurance, and that would not have been possible if we did the legal documentation in the DR.

Hey Tami...I'm kind of leaning towards this...I don't want to have to wait 3-6 mths for a marriage certificate! Do you know if you can do the opposite?? Go to your DW (but not really wedding!) and then come back & sign papers?? I guess it would be more like a "love ceremony" instead of wedding or renewal of vows!

Thanks!!

WEDO is at least %65 less for everything and also they are registered in Canada, USA, and The Dominican.

They have been providing doccumentation for over 12 years and have personal and professional knowledge of the legal system in all 3 countries. All the resorts in the DR recomend them and god forbid you forget one of your doccuments when yo arrive they are right there and can get them to you. Using DSR1 is not the Dominican consulate in Toronto as they try to tell everyone they are. They are a huge rip off.

We got a quote before we where married and they tried to charge us over $800 USD and then another $150 after we came home to translate the doccuments back to english.

Check out WEDO and use them with ultimate confidance, they are directly connected to all USA and Canada Dominican consulates

This is great news. So when we will be able to register our marriage in Canada if we use WeDo? Thanks for the info becasue I was going to use this place. Now I will def rethink it. J.

MOGroom
Thanks!!!
If we did the legal marriage first we would need nothing but the marriage certificate though right?? No docs translated, etc. Would we still have to pay for the judge down there to do the renewal?? This is something to look in to. But I just don't think I'd feel the same...I'd love for us to look at each other during the ceremony on the clifftop & know that we becoming man & wife...other than that I feel that it's just a "show". Lovely, more decisions!! I thought this DW thing was supposed to be easy!! LOL

    • My wedding date is set for the next month but not found any wedding planner finally got one wedding planner. its very very help for my wedding arrangement thank you indian wedding company
    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
    • Welcome. I am a past Dreams Los Cabos bride. Please let us know if we can assist in any way. We have some great promotions (bride and groom fly free, comped rooms and upgrades).    info@wrighttravelagency.com
