I didn’t need one to marry. I just needed it for the Visa ID afterwards.[/quote]
did u get married and register in the court? cause when u married in court (in front of a judge plus two witnesses), they require u to provide single certificate in order to get marriage certificate from them…so hopefully in my case, my marriage certificate from court will be enough to register my daughter…
Housecat, did u register your marriage in court?[/quote]
I married in 2000 in Taiwan in a court ceramony and registered that marriage. The crazy thing was that for the visa, I had to also marry my husband in the States. Not related to this accept that sometimes things are so illogical here as to be beyond understanding.
The US does not issue single certs, so I went to the TECO office and swore before another citizen that I was single in the States. They issued me a paper saying that I was single. Wasn’t that big a deal, just a bit of hassle.[/quote]
Sorry, my above quote is incorrect. I did need the single certificate. They no longer accept a sworn testimony from Canadians. So instead we need to get a non-marriage search. Which is still rather useless as it only applies to the province you get it from. So if you are already married…just get one from another province.
