    Good Luck!
    So the consulate can do the translation AND the legalization? Is that correct, because I thought they could just do the legalization. Also, if that's true and you use the consulate for translation, do you have to physically be in the office or can you mail them there?

    Wedo isn't the only translation option, right? Just the one most people go with?

      Ok the D.R. Consulate in Chicago, said all that is requirered- Birth Certificate for both, ans single avidavidt for both- To be translated and legalize the cost is 200.00 for both! HOWEVER- in order for it to be LEGAL in the UNITED STATES you need to send then your Original Marriage License to be translated and legalized the cost of this is 150.00

          Do you gals know if there is a minimum amount of time that you need to be in the DR prior to getting married? Some websites say three days and others say no minimum stay/waiting period?

            I think the "official" requirement is 3 days for it to be legal but honestly, I question how often that's actually enforced. As you noticed, some resort websites will tell you three days, others have no mention of it. So I asked my TA/wedding coordinator as she specializes only in destination weddings and most she does are in the DR so she knows her stuff - she basically said the 3 day rule is bogus but some places may enforce it more than others. So ask upfront!!!

              We went through WEDO and they were great - I asked for a quick turnaround time and got it with no problems. The resort and the judge had no problems with the paperwork. I will be sending them our wedding certificate to be translated as well, when it gets here!

                I'm also curious about the "mandatory" waiting period.
                I feel like going through a company such as WEDO is what I will do only because I feel safer depending on someone who deals with these issues everyday. I'm affraid of missing something and screwing up everything.

                  I called three different consulate offices today (Chicago, New Orleans, and California) and got three different prices. They can charge different prices. California was the most expensive--$135 for the single status, $135 for the first three pages of divorce decree and $25 for each additional page, and $135 for the birth certificate. The lady also mentioned that we must have an apostille affixed to our birth certificates which would be an additional $26, if they provided it. WOW!!!

                  Can someone please provide me for approx. prices from WeDO?
