Go to the local court house, get them to stamp and seal a 2 year background check stating that they have no records of any marriage, any divorce decree with a stamp and seal from the local court house. Then you will need to get an affidavit of single status, once you are here or have it done at a US consulate in the USA, either way will work. Then all of these documents will need to be translated and certified in Vietnam it usually takes about 3 days, along with the application form for marriage, and a mental exam done at Chao Ray hospital here in Vietnam. Outside of the Department of Justice in HCMC there are people there that can help with the entire process, they usually charge $300 but will take you where you need to go and also help make sure everything is done correctly and that it will go smoothly. If you need I can give you a number for a guy that offers this type of service. Jerome

I tend to agree, the marriage application process was the most difficult part of this so far. We use a service for preparing the documents there. Here you will need to fill out all the forms and gather all the evidence request by the Vietnamese Consulate. http://www.vietnamconsulate-sf.org/ecms/index.php?cPath=57&osCsid=5af2288c0ef5f111262ab39945e4a963

These will need to be notarized, then the notary verified by the your state's secretary of state aposilte service. Then all documents mailed to the Consulate for verification. These will come back to you sealed. Then that will be mailed to his fiancee in Vietnam to be submitted. If you can not stay for a month for the wedding ceremony and the documents to be finalized it will cost 100 a day for "EXPIDITED SERVICE"

Good Luck
