I have done some research on this website and others, and I haven't really found the answer I am looking for. Hopefully some of you can help me out...
I recently got married at Sunset Jamaica Grande in Ocho Rios, Jamaica. I live in Orlando, Florida. I got our official marriage certificate in the mail. I wanted to confirm that it has been filed in the United States. How can I do that? Is there anything I need to do with the marriage certificate to assure that it is filed here in the US? Can I use my Jamaican Marriage Certificate to get my name changed?
I asked the resort WAY ahead of time what I needed to do to make sure our wedding was considered "official" here in the US. I was told that our marriage license would be filed with the Jamaican government, and then filed with the US Embassy (making it legal). The resort told me that they would do it all. However, I want to confirm that it is recognized here.
Any thoughts, comments, or suggestions?
