Cdn Brides - where to get the documents done

Recommended Posts

We used WEDO. $300US and we sent an extra $28US for them to Fedex the documents back. We got them back in a week. We copied the Single Status from their website and just filled in our own info. One for each (bride and groom). We got our SSAD notarized and our town hall by a commisoner of oaths ( cost us $10). WEDO actually faxed everything to our w/c but I emailed her copies just to be sure.

$40 to translate each document (2 birth certificates and 2 single status affidavit)

You can always opt to get the documents translated by a certified translator but the Canadian dollar right now is pretty good so it will maybe cost you $50 less not to do it through the Embassy. The documents are good 3 months following legalization.
Hi trance_angel,
I am just wondering who I should make the certified cheque or money order out to, would it be made to the "Dominican Republic Consulate"?
I am also very confused as to which office I should send my paper work to. example: Toronto Consulate, DR Embassy in Ottawa or the Consulate in Montreal??

Thanks and congrats :)

Okay, I have a very silly question. If we are getting the paperwork for the Dominican, is there any paperwork to be done for Canada.

 

Do we need to get a marriage license in Canada or do we just submit some type of paperwork that we get from the Domician after the wedding.

We also used WEDO, and they were great to deal with. Once you get back, you'll have to get you will have to get your marriage certicate translated if you intend to change your last name or your marital status on your passport, etc. I used: Florinda Lages, ATIO Certified Translator, M.A., B.A., 11 Rothsay Ave., Toronto, ON M8Z 4L9, Tel.: 416-201-0390, Cell: 416-318-3792, email: flolages@rogers.com. Translation and taxes came to $59.01 and I had it back within 1 week!

Hi sgathercole,
Your legalized docs are only good for 3 months, so it is a good idea to have them done 3 months prior to your wedding date. I just sent mine to WEDO last Thursday, just waiting for them to come back.

This is piece of info is from the Canada Dominican Embassy website:
Please take into account that once your documents are legalized by this Embassy or a Dominican Consulate, they will be valid for three (3) consecutive months from the legalization date. A divorced bride cannot get married until 10 months have passed after the divorce is official, unless her intended husband is the same person she has divorced. If this is your case, please keep in touch with us as there may be new legal changes on this matter.

Cheers,

Cara

    • 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.
