Notarized copy of birth certificate

Recommended Posts

I just realized there are short and long versions of birth certificate. I sent a notarized copy of short version and advised my WC that Canadian BC don't carry father's name.

 

Has anyone gotten married in Jamaica with the short version? I'm not sure I have enough time to get the long version now. I leave next week.

Hey everyone

 

I, too, have a bit of a problem. Now my birth certificates are both in french, so I have to get them translated. BUt where do I do that ? I already checked with a notary and they said I would have to get them translated and that they would do one affidavit certifiying that both are true copies of the originals. Now is that even what I need ?

 

And I thought that the notary was going to do the translation!! So what do I do now ?

 

I have been looking everywhere for the info

 

Anyone can help

I've just had confirmation from Chandlyn that the scanned and emailed version of the 'certified' (by my solicitor/lawyer) birth certificates and passport is sufficient, I do not need to post these. I do need to take the originals with me though.

I had a HUGE issue with this ..... Canadian birth certificates did not start including the fathers name until 1984. My fiancee was born prior so never had his fathers name of the certificate, where as I was born in 1986 and do have my fathers name on it. However, we just took it to a lawyer who gave us certififed copies and it was fine. But it took forever for my Wedding coordinator to figure this out!

I checked with my wedding coordinator and she told me that the short form is fine, my wedding certificate will just state father unknown.  I have enough time to still get the long form so I'm thinking about doing that so I'm prepared either way.

My future hubby ran into a problem with trying to get a copy of his birth certificate notarized in GA . Get this the olny way they would have done it is if the evryone that orginally signed the bc their to sign again. Are kidding me, the dootor is probably dead by now! He called me and I talked to them while he was thrying to get this done and tha is what they told me. In VA I had no problems the notary told me to bring my orginal bc and make a copy of my orginal bc in front of her and that's all I needed. So I called Sandals and explained to the WC what was going on she then informed me that some that are picky about copying bc. So she sent me an affidavit that we will need to get notarized that basically says that you agree that you are sending acopy of your true original bc. Thank God! I was statring to get a littled worried about gettin gthis paperwork done.

I was born in Manitoba and I just had to fax over a request to vital statistics for a certified copy of my BC. It took about six weeks and I received it in the mail. FI was born in Ontario and he submitted the application online for a certified copy of his BC. He got his after only a couple of weeks. The Manitoba application only required my name, d.o.b and place of birth. The Ontario one wanted all kinds of info, right down to Mother's address at time of birth. Each of them cost about $25. It was pretty cool to see how our mother's wrote back then. And P.S. we were both born before 1984 and both provinces listed the fathers on the long form, there is no parental information on the short wallet size forms.

    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • 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.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
