Hey everyone,

 

Just wondering how you're going about getting this form - the information I'm finding seems to be implying that we can just create our own and sign it in front of a notary... is that legit? LOL

Is this something needed for the DR?  Are you legally marrying there or in Canada?

 

I am legally marrying in Canada and from all I have read and/or heard from commissionaires of marriage (forgetting their real name lol), we just need a marriage license from the registry!  They are about $76.

    That is exactly right. I typed out the affidavit and a notary signed and stamped it. I used wedo.com.do to translate and legalize all the documents needed
    . It feels a bit weird because you just send them the documents and a money order and then they send it all back to you without any contact at all (I did email them to confirm the price, but I think I had to email them twice before I got an answer) so you have to just trust that it's all good (and it was!) It also took a bit longer than I thought, but I think that was actually UPS because it was right around Christmas. Anyway, I hope that helps!

    Great, thanks @Blushrose!  How long did it take?  I'm assuming you sent notarized copies, not original documents?

      I sent the documents (yes copies, not original) mid November and received them back a few days after Christmas.
      I found it all a bit stressful, so glad to help out :)
