Birth Certificate

Recommended Posts

Hey guys we are getting married in Jamaica at the riu we want to have a civil ceremony but I don't have a birth certificate and trying to get one would be very difficult. Does anyone know if you really need to have this document to get married could I not provide other documents like a drivers license or citizen ship card?

thanks

The new law passed on June 1, 2009 requires you to have a passport for travel...

Also, the Sandals resort in Jamaica that we are getting married at requires us to get our birth certs notorized then sent out to them like 60 days(?) prior to wedding, in order to be a legal marriage.

Dont' know if it helps, but I noticed on here that a few other girls have used a "document processing" site to obtain there documents. You have to request it with a fee, but you can maybe get what you need this way. Question: If you have gotten a passport, haven't you gotten your birth certificate.... you need one to get the passport?

 

Usually your birth certificate is located in the city hall location of which you were born.... in the vital statistics office. You can just write to them and send them the fee along and they will send it to you. It's considered to be of "Public Record" , so anyone can request the information. I would probably start off by calling the city office of which you were born to ask them of the process.

Good Luck.

You can order your State Birth Certificate @ vitalchek.com it takes about 10 to 14 business days. Then you can order your passport which takes 8 weeks.

You really do need to confirm this with your WC, but I think that you will need to get a copy before they will marry you.

    • 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.
