New Yorkers - Destination weddings not recognized in our state???
Posted 04 March 2010 - 03:22 PM
I'm definitely not saying anything against same sex marriages, but why would they be recognized if they got married out of state and not a regular marriage.
Does anyone have any other information??

If you have any fears, you could go ahead and get married in NY before the DW.

And the out of state thing is just ridiculous. Think about it...if someone gets married in Connecticut then moves to NY a few years later, the state doesn't make them get married again. Whoever you talked to definitely gave you some bad info. You'll be fine.

My situation is a bit different because I was divorced, but I believe that I have to get my paperwork and birth certificate apostillized?
Thanks for your help, I appreciate it.

I guess if you're really worried, you can do the legal ceremony here first though (that's what we're doing).

This makes me angry because so many people said to me beforehand that I shouldn't get married out of the country, it'll cause all kinds of proclems. No one will recognize it, blah blah blah. People don't know what they're talking about! Grrr...(Sorry for the random rant, it's not at you!)
I'm sure you've passed by me many times. I'm in Newburgh.

I wish this were spelled out in specifics somewhere.

you will definitely have to get the marriage certificate translated from spanish to english & I read somewhere that they do that in the city you get married in but that it can take a long time. That's one of the reasons we decided to just have the legal day here (along the many other ropes you have to jump over to get married legally in MX).

Lexi, really the only extra step is getting the marriage certificate translated. No biggie. Don't let these things get to you. I have a family friend in NY getting married in Mexico in May. It can totally be done. And no more listening to people who say that NY doesn't recognize out of state marriages.
