HELP! How do I make my marriage legal?
Posted 26 January 2007 - 11:27 PM
we just returned from having a civil ceremony and it really wasn't that difficult. i know your coordinator is slow to respond but just ask her for the application form or else i can give you the form i was asked to fill out. you do not need an apostille or translated birth certificate in cabo, but you should get that in writing from your coordinator before you go.
once you get there, you will need the passports of your 4 witnesses for your coordinator to xerox. the rest will be transferred from your app to the certificate. your coordinator should actually fill our your app for you from the info you give her. the blood tests are a snap and they will be done right in your hotel.
dont worry too much because most coordinators at the hotels dont start workign on your details until the month before

A civil ceremony (conducted by the Justice of the Peace) is the ONLY kind the Mexican government recognizes as legal. This is also recognized world-wide...meaning your marriage is seen as legal anywhere you go...be it Mexico, US, or Europe!

So I guess we'll be legally married in Mex, which will be recognized in US. But I still don't know what happens after that. It sounds like we'll get a copy of the marriage cert, then get the official one in 4-5 mos. Then what? Do I have to take that to an office somewhere here in US? Or is that it? Anyone know?

Good advice - I will try to contact SoS.
