Recommended Posts

This is a question for brides that did a legal ceremony in the DR. How long did it take you get your marriage certificate from the DR? We are trying to decide on a legal or symbolic ceremony and wanted to know which is easier.

 

Thanks in advance!

@@DWBride2015 she used to be on the site. Once we got back from her wedding she was unable to access her account. She's pretty upset as she posted all of her DIYs throughout the year leading up to her wedding:(

I have read it can take up to six months.  That's why my FI and I decided to go with symbolic cermony.

Hi.

 

It's been a while since I've been back on this site but since I was scrolling through I noticed this topic. Just a note to future brides, much of the marriage license will greatly depend on your coordinator as you already know. My husband and I got married in PC in 11/30/13 and we had our license in hand by the end of the year. I will say a huge part of that is the fact that our coordinator Carolina at GPPC was adamant that we scan/ send her preliminary documents BEFORE sending copies via post. Why? Because there were some things that weren't done correctly. She sent us back to the embassy and calling our own states offices a couple of times to make sure everything is perfect.

 

I've heard a few stories about delays, and while that doesn't mean the coordinators were clueless, these folks I know did not have the attn to detail from the coordinator and things were just sent in with a hope and a prayer.

 

It can take up to 6 months but I've heard from those I know they received theirs in hand within 2 months. I thought the process was easy but after reviewing some of the things we had to do the most that caused the headaches were tiny mistakes. Hope this helps any future brides!

I am having a hard time understanding exactly the documents I need for the legal wedding.

 

I have our certified copied of birth certificates and know I need to get these translated into spanish. Do I get it translated at the dominican consulate?

 

I also know that I need a single status affadavid signed before a notary and translated into spanish. Do I need to create this document myself or where can I find it?

 

Then I saw something about needing an apostille. Does anyone know anything about this!

 

HELP

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?  
    • Sadly no .. its been a year and a half since our wedding and till this day we cannot get a hold of him.  We had a few people reach out to us and the same thing happened to them about a month or 2 after us.
