Translated Mexican Marriage Liscense... now what

Recommended Posts

Hello-

We got married last week in Cancun. I have the translated marriage liscense but I don't know what to do with it. When I contacted my city hall, they acted like they had no clue what I was talking about.

 

We live in the Illinois and I wanted to see if a past bride can give me some direction. I am in the process of searching the internet for an answer!

 

Thank you,

Laura

There's nothing you have to do. Your marriage is legal and recognized in the US. Just start changing your name if that's what you want to do. I was legally married in Mexico and had very few problems with name change on documents/ accounts and my license was not translated.

Karen -

You didn't get your marriage license translated and haven't had any problems with making legal changes in the US? That's good to know! I called the Registrar of Deeds in my county and they said I don't need to come in or anything, I can just start filling out the paperwork to get a new SS card and drivers license. I have been wondering whether I need to pay for translation. Thanks!

Here's an update. I talked to my city courthouse and their is no need to file the document. If we want, we can file our marriage license as a misc document to have it on file. We paid to have the document translated, but there is no need for it! I went to the social security office and they wanted/needed the orginal spanish version of the marriage certificate. I also went to get my new license and they wanted the spanish version too. I think that we paid $45 for the resort to translate the document. I would say that it's up to you, but I have not needed it to date!

I was going to say - I just brought both copies to the SS office and the DL place too. The reason they wanted the spanish one was b/c there was some sort of "seal" or something - the translated one is more like a photocopy - but I still brought them both, and had NO problems at all! It was way easier than I ever thought! Good Luck!

Thanks so much for the information! I'll probably just get it translated back here if I need to. I've read several of your posts and you've been so helpful and after seeing your pictures and hearing about your experience, I can't wait to get married at the MP next month!!!

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
