The minister or Justice of the peace will send off the marriage licence,but to obtain a legal name change you have to send off for a certified licence.

Any fake or forged documents used would make the marriage not valid.

A marriage certificate has to be filed with in 2 years of the ceremony to make the marriage legal. If it has been longer than 2 years then the marriage is not legally recognized by the courts.

An explanation letter explaining why documents were filed late can be hand written. The letter should include the reasons the documents were filed late.

Yes, it is still valid and will be recognized. You should make sure you have a copy of the documents and a certified translation.

Of course not. Marriage is a legal status. Forging a legal document is against the law and you can be charged with fraud!

It depends, in California the marriage ceremony is required to make the marriage legal, and it has to be recorded.

Somewhere in your governing documents, probably in pages filed with the local property tax authority, you should be able to find a legal description of the land, which will make this easement specification.

It is legal in the US as long as you have the documents to prove it. Certified translations are good to have.

Because marriage is a legal condition. It affect inheritance, dowry and property deeds.

You need a marriage certificate from the parish. It will be issued after the marriage license has been executed and returned to the court house.

The civil marriage license must be signed by the official who performed the marriage ceremony. It is generally their duty to make certain the signed marriage license is delivered to the government office charged with recording marriages. Once they receive it your marriage becomes part of the public record. In some jurisdictions the returned, signed marriage license becomes the marriage certificate. An official marriage certificate must have an official government seal. A government issued marriage certificate is the official proof of your marriage.

You can travel to the probate court where the decedent died and check the index to see if a probate was filed. Take a notepad and pen with you (and a camera if you have one to photograph the documents). If a probate was filed you can request to see the file and make notes of any documents in it.

Only if your brother in law is a legal notary. The notary must be legal to make the documents legal. The notary needs to be licensed.It is poor practice to notarize your own documents or the documents of family members. In some States it is expressly forbidden.Check with your Secretary of State in the State in which you live in to verify.

You can't make this weapon legal, ever. In addition, the mere possession of it is considered a felony under the U.S. Code.

If the divorce is uncontested, or unsettled, they help to make the settle the disagreements. They handle all of the official documents that have to be filed.

They are legal documents that can appear in almost any form - from legal sized heavy- weight paper documents all the way to photocopier paper - it makes no difference what they LOOK like it is the signatures on them that make lt 'legal."

You entered into a legal marriage in Mexico. In order to re-marry, you must end the previous marriage. A divorce decree is going to be needed in order to make any subsequent marriage legal.

I would suggest that you make it the best kept secret you ever had. Now you will have nothing to lose when you get divorced.

Marriage is generally a state issue. If you marry according to the laws of another country and your marriage would be legally allowed in your state (i.e. you aren't closely related, of the same sex, married to more than one person) then generally the state will recognize your marriage abroad. In general, unless the marriage breaks U.S. state laws, marriages which are legally performed and valid abroad are also legally valid in the United States. Inquiries regarding the validity of a marriage abroad should be directed to the attorney general of the state in the United States where the parties to the marriage live. http://www.state.gov/documents/organization/86802.pdf.

The same way any divorce is obtained. People who are in jail (or being detained) can be served documents pertaining to divorce, lawsuits and so forth. If the marriage is legal the divorce petition can be filed in the state where the couple has established residency. Make sure you file the divorce while she is still in jail, right. I'm assuming it's easier than waiting until she's in another

You need to consult with an attorney who can review your error and draft a new affidavit to correct it. Very often when non-professionals draft their own legal documents and make a mistake, it gets worse as they try to correct it. In the end, resolving the errors can be costly. The best way to obtain effective legal documents is to have them drafted by an attorney.You need to consult with an attorney who can review your error and draft a new affidavit to correct it.
