    I am getting married January 13th at Riu Ocho Rios and it is time to send my legal documents but I am all confused now. Can someone tell me if I have to send my original certified/notarized copies or do I have to send copies of the certified/notarized copies and bring the original with me? I looked everywhere for this answer and can't find it anywhere! I am desparately waiting for someone to answer me since my documents have to leave tomorrow to get there in time. Please help!

      Would the resort / WC be able to let you know? Sorry, I don't know the answer but good luck!

          Thanks Maureen, I already have all my notarized copies but what I am wondering is do I send my original copies (from the notary) or do I have to send copies of my origanal copies?

            Thanks Maureen, I will send the original then. I did not think of it this way. I guess I was afraid they will loose everything!

              Josee,

              We got married in Jamaica and live in Ontario. We sent the originals down. Good luck! :)

                    What was Maureen's reply - notarized copies of the originals or notarized originals?  My TA said that most places accept a photocopy of the original that is notarized as an exact copy of the original.  The word copies is a bit confusing.  I'm going to have to be sending mine soon too.

                      I was wondering the same thing, but didn't want to risk it.  I just requested a certified copy from the state (Michigan).  It cost us $26 per copy unfortunately and took about 3 weeks.
