Marriage License Issue
Posted 13 July 2009 - 07:48 PM
Not sure if this was a fluke or if others had a similar issue, but wanted to make others aware.
Even though we are going to Jamaica I decided we will do the legal marriage before we leave.

i don,t know if you could answer me a question please.i spoke to the translations department as advised by my ta to confirm what we needed to translate into spanish prior to travel i,e birth certificate etc.she said because we are both single and have never changed our names we don,t need to translate anything.is this the case as far as you are aware?

I just got married legally in Mexico and only had to email a copy of my passport to our wedding coordinator at the resort. Nothing needed to be translated! I asked many times if we needed to bring our birth certificates and the answer was no b/c neither of us had changed our names previously.
We received our marriage cert/license in Spanish before we left the resort. We were told that we should receive a translated copy in 1-3 months! I plan to wait to change my name once the English version arrives.

I personally have been debating on legal marriage prior to wedding because of the wait to change everything over. We plan on buying a house shortly after we get married and my realtor said it would be much easier and less paperwork in the future if our last names were legally the same. Mine was a different reason, sorry if it didn't sound like that...

I've tried searching online but the best I could find was to consult the attorney general of your state - I couldn't find how to do that though..
