    Hi Everyone,

    This question has probably come up before, but as I am still trying to figure out all the in and outs of the forum and we are also on a bit of a time crunch since we are getting married in February 2010.
    So here is goes. Does anyone know if you actually have to get your birth certificates translated to spanish for a legal ceremony? I have done a lot of searching and keep on coming up with mixed answers. I have read that you only need them translated in you have been divorced. And others say you need to translate them no matter what.

    Anyone help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks, Ashley

      Hi Ashely -
      I got married in May legally in Mexico. We DID NOT need any documents translated. But our marriage certificate is in Spanish So i will need to get that translated ( i think) in order to give it to the various places to register our marriage. (i.e:town hall, etc) Oh and i got 3 copies of my certificate so if someone doesn't return it I will still have other originals to use down the line. I heard that once you leave its hard to get an original and many places need the original copies when changing your name.
      (Just ask your WC for the spefics of your location - many some places are different).

        we get married in february to.i was told by the translating office here in uk that you only need them translating if you have been married before or if either of you have ever changed your name.however she did say that each resort is different.i would just double check it with your wedding co-ordinator.i was worried about this too as i was told by my ta we had to do this.
