Canadian Brides - translating marriage license??

Recommended Posts

You can try to get things changed over without a translated MC...but don't be surprised if you get asked for a translated copy. Every place (agency, province, city) seems to be different.

Changing my name was EASY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I didn't even wait for the 'official' documentation to come in.

 

When we left Cuba we had an un-official license, I used said license to first change my

 

#1. Drivers License

 

WHEN the new DL came in with my new name on it, I headed to the Bank and had all my information changed there. It was one step, and I didn't need to present my marraige license, just my DL.

 

I then headed to the OHIP (ontario health card) office, and along with my DL, my un-offical marraige licence, and my passport (in my maiden name) I changed my OHIP card.

 

................then I got in a car accident, another story entirely

 

Shortly there after (6 months after the wedding) our official **all stamped up** marraige license came in.

 

This is when I changed my Passport -- which I am still waiting to receive -- I sent a copy of my new DL, my new OHIP card, my birth cert., and my old passport to Passport Canada. When I spoke with Passport Canada, they said that I did not need to send my marraige license, but I sent a copy anyway (the lady on the phone said that it wouldn't hurt).

 

EASY......

 

Really, no marraige license translation at all!

Yup...if you can get past MTO to get your DL changed then there should be no need to get your MC translated. I'm a slacker and STILL have not changed my name!! Maybe I'll go this Saturday & see if I can get away with using my spanish MC!

The MTO people did not hassle me at all! OHIP was a different story because I still had an old red and white card!

So...I finally went & got my DL changed today!! WOOHOO!!!!

 

I tried to get it done without translating & I was able to!! I lucked out though - one of the workers spoke/read Spanish...otherwise I would have had to go get it translated first!! Now, I guess it's on to getting everything else done!!

I was going to go to the local multicultural center - if there is one in your area you could probably get it done there. I checked with an online company & they quoted me over $100!!! I've heard of people only paying like $35 or $40 - so you should shop around! :)

Good luck...and hopefully you won't need it translated!

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
