Getting Married In 3 Weeks....help

Recommended Posts

My partner and I are travelling to NYC from Scotland next month to get married.


He has been married previously but was divorced in 2014. We have his divorce certificate to bring with us to City Hall, will this be enough? I’ve read reviews that in a few countries people need to also supply a Certificate of No Impediment. Is this the case for New York? I’m now in a panic as I can’t seem to confirm this online. Can anyone help?


Also, do we need to bring our birth certificates as well as our passports?

@claireb89  I found these links that might be of help to you. They all mention divorce requirements. My first instinct would be to say take as much paperwork as you can. It's always better to have more than not enough. Yes to passports, birth certificates and try to get a certified copy of the final divorce decree. My husband and I were married in Jamaica and we were both divorced. It was fairly straight forward but we had to leave the certified copies of our final divorce decrees with the authorities in Jamaica so it's very possible NY will require the same thing.









Good luck!!

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
