Marriage Certificates

Imagine this: You are in a foreign country. Your spouse, who has retained her maiden name for professional reasons, becomes ill and is hospitalized. You need to make medical decisions regarding her care – perhaps giving authorization for a surgery. Your passports have two different last names on them. How do you prove you are married and legally allowed to give those authorizations?

Suppose you have taken up residency in another country with your new husband and need to enroll your children in school. They have different last names than you, because they are from a former marriage. How do you prove you are actually their mother?

In both of these instances, you will need to produce a marriage certificate, and, as is most often the case, it must be certified, notarized, and in the native language.

The point is this: If you are traveling with your spouse, there may be circumstances in which you need proof that you are married. Your marriage certificate should accompany you when you travel, and it should be translated into the local languages of the countries to which you will be traveling. Many couples do not think of this when they make their travel plans, but they should.

Certification and Notarization

Because a marriage license is a legal document, it will need to be translated by a certified pro. Certification means that the translator meets any and all certification requirements that his/her native country requires. This means that the translation will be accepted by local authorities in the native country.

Notarization is also a common requirement. Your translator(s) will also notarize your marriage certificate to give it the authority it needs. S/he will have the proper notary public certification.
