Legal Requirements For Jamaican Wedding

Recommended Posts

Hope someone can help me out.  Everything I am reading tells me that I need to have a "notarized copy of final divorce decree".  I have a certified copy of my final divorce decree.  Do I need to take that to get notarized...or is the certified copy what they need?  I'm so confused..lol,

Congratulations Snorfle1! I am getting married in Jamaica as well. We had to have the signature page of the certified copy of our final divorce decree notarized.

Congrats and happy planning! Yes - you will need to get the final decree notarized and be prepared to leave that in Jamaica. That's what will go to the Registrar so you won't get it back. I'm not sure why but we didn't have to provide it all in advance. I pdf'd everything down first, then brought all the originals when we arrived, including the final divorce papers. But I've read other posts where the ladies had to provide eveything in advance. Check with whichever resort you've chosen to find out how they do things. There don't seem to be too many consistencies in Jamaica! lol ya mon!!

I was married in Jamaica in June - while I didn't have to provide a divorce degree, we simply scanned notarized COPIES of our birth certificates and passports and emailed them to the wedding coordinators. The notary included a letter stating that he saw the original copies and basically we are who we say we are. We never had to provide originals and had no issue getting our license.

I am getting married in Jamaica on 10/29/16. We had to have notarized copies of the divorce decree. We sent originals via mail to the wedding coordinator at Sandals. We're set to go!!  :wub:

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
