    Default Help with Legal Documents for Marriage License & Certificate

    Hello,

    My fiance and I were planning a holiday at CSS in Jamaica and having a wedding there. Before we booked anything we just needed some help in regards to the documents/identification that needs to be supplied for the marriage license/certificate.

    I am a Naturalised citizen of the USA. I have my naturalisation certificate that has my date of birth, a US passport, New Jersey Drivers license, and Social Security card. However I do not have a copy/or the original birth certificate (My family fled from Vietnam during the 70's). Will I need a caopy or original birth certificate to obtain the marriage license and certificate.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Hai

    The Ministry of Justice requires proof of citizenship, and the most common form of proof is a birth certificate. However, b/c you are no longer a citizen of the country in which you were born, I would assume that your certificate of naturalization would suffice. I'm not a Jamaican lawyer, however, so I can't answer your question with certainty.

    I would contact the Ministry of Justice (customerservice@moj.gov.jm), the government agency that issues marriage licenses, for guidance. Good luck.

    I know everything, and I'm always right (just ask my husband).
