      Hi Ladies,

       

      I finally heard back about the documents required for legal marriage in jamaica and what to do about birth certificates that don't have the father's name... It looks like you need to send a copy of the bride and grooms birth certificate notarized in addition the a notarized letter stating the father's name. Here's the response from the coordinator.

       

      We are from Ontario Canada and our birth certificates do not have the fathers name. Can you please let me know what is required in this case?

      Attach a letter  on each birth certificate stating the names of the fathers and have that letter notarized .

       

      Hope this helps!

          If the letter has to be notarized, you might as well just request the long form. It's only $35. A notarized letter will be at least that much.

           

          I must say we both thought it was pretty neat to see our mother's writing back when we were born.

            To notarize a letter isn't actually that much, but you do have to do your internet research. I need notarized letters each time I leave the country with my 2 sons. He charges me $5/each, but I draft the letters before hand, so all that he has to do is sign and stamp. I used to have a neighbour that was a lawyer, that was helpful, and free!

              Alright Ladies....so to update all of us on the whole long form/short form issue that we are all having right now lol, I just got off the phone with the resorts W/C manager at the GPLH (natelie green) and I asked her what we needed to send her still. She stated that IF we want our fathers to be on the wedding certificate at that point we would have to get the letter with both fathers on it(notarized) to her 6 weeks before the wedding, as so they can do all the paperwork on their end.

               

              However, if you are not wanting your fathers on your wedding certificate, all you need to fax to them is a copy  both birth certificates(notarized) as well as your photo ID (passport OR license) of the bride and groom (this doent need to be notarized) and then you need to have the paperwork for the resort itself....which has all our deposit info wedding date info ETC which we have ALL done as ALL our dates are set lol

               

              I hope this helps, as I know I was happy to find out it was one less thing to do
