Canadian Brides - translating marriage license??

Recommended Posts

Are there any Canadian Brides ( or BC Brides) who have had to have their marriage license translated and if so what was required? Was it expensive? Can you have it translated in Mexico?

 

Thank You!

Amy

If you plan to change your last name it will be required. I was told it was the same process as getting documents legalized (you bring to the Dominican embassy and they translate to english and legalize the document).

Well I wish I had good news.

I am getting married in Cuba so your requirements maybe different. Here is my story:

I am a widow and my FI is divorced. I need to get my marriage cert and the death cert noterized, translated and legalized by the cuban Conulate. My FI needs to have his divorce Cert put through these three steps too. I have an appointment with my lawyer on Tuesday to do the noterization and it will run about $60 plus tax for the three docs. I then have to send them in to the Cuban Consulate with a money order or certified check for $1136. They will translate the documents for $32 per doc (x3). Then they will legalize the 6 documents (3 english and 3 spanish) for $160 per document. It will take about 10 days for them to do this work.

 

I found some good information on Debbies Caribbean Resort Review... which lead me to the Cuban Consulate in Toronto.

 

What a huge expense. I was not expecting it to be so muchsad.gif

oops a small correction.

The translation cost is $48 per document and there is a $32 fee to have them mail me back the package.

So a friend of mine got married in Cuba in January. Her husband was asking a lady at the License MInistry place what she needs to get her name changed and she told him that the marriage certificate and stuff needs to be translated?!

 

Anyone know if I'll have to get it translated to do all my name changes??

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
