The part I'm confused about is the apostile document. What is this, do I need it and where do I get it?

 

Hi MCBride3,

 

From my understanding is that once you do the legal ceremony in Mexico, you're good to go.  Based on this site, it looks like you just need to come back and register your marriage with the license.  I put a link to the source I was reading down below.

I actually just found the answer to your question yesterday since I am just starting all the paperwork now :) My mom works with the provincial government and looked it up. So! Apparently Canada didn't sign the Hauge (sp?) agreement so we don't do Apostilles here. The process is, get your documents photocopied and notarized (by a notary or registry) then send your documents to the address on this site (the website has the rest of the process) http://www.internati...icates_of_birth It takes about 3 weeks, they will mail the documents back if you provide a prepaid (best to use UPS or something you can easily track) envelope. Then you can mail your newly internationally certified documents to your resort. The notary will likely cost something (a lot of government officials are registered notaries, ask your MLA, MP or alderman possibly) but the international certification (equivalent to the apostille) is free, just give yourself the time needed to receive it. If you go with one of the companies online that provide the service, all you're really paying for is for someone else to do all that. Hope that helps you! :)

So I got some more info on this now. If you get your birth certificates notarized, you can then take them to the mexican embassy closest to where the birth certificates were issued (Mine in calgary, FI's was in drumheller, so we can go to the embassy in calgary) and they can officially notarize them for you and it will be recognized in mexico. A little easier then sending them to ottawa.
