    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.

      We are in Southern Ontario and used WEDO for our legal work as well. They were very simple to deal with and I would highly recommend them!

        $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!

              I am getting married in January of 2011. Everyones information was very helpful. I just have one more question. How long prior to your wedding date did you start getting the papers legalized, both for the wedo or the dominican embassy here in Canada? Thanks in advance

                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
