Marriage agreement in addition to marriage license

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Is a marriage agreement ever needed in the CR-1 process or just the license? The marriage agreement has the whole marriage spelled out legally and some signatures of the witnesses, us, and the lawyers. I'm hoping just the license is enough, but maybe someone can chime in with some experience.

If this is a 'local' document, then the US Embassy in whatever country she's in - MIGHT expect to see it. If you have it, get it translated into English, and include wiht the I-130 submittal.

Good Luck ! (I note this is another question from you, without changing up yer profile to indicate which visa you are wanting to file a petition for, and also still showing a 'lack of country'. Can you update that, soonish, today? )


Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !

The document you would use is whatever is considered official proof of marriage. In the US, its a marriage certificate, which is often the licence signed by the bride, groom, officiant, and witnesses. The real copy is often kept on file at the county office, and official copies are provided as proof of marriage.

Hi

I am not sure about what the term Marriage agreement means in terms of USA Law through the 50 states, in most countries it need to be taken in from of an authority with "power enough" to celebrate a valid wedding, like a judge of peace, a Major, etc.

In my oppinion you only need a valid Marriage certificate. It can be done inside or abroad but have to be a valid in the please were the marriage took place.

If you cannot find a valid one, i think is better to contact a Lawyer to determine the validity of this document. But if you have a valid one, just go a head. You dont need anything else.

In other words, if according to the particularities of your wife's country a valid marriage certificate is the same thing than a marriage agreement in terms that you can go to their consular office and have it validated as a valid one go ahead.

PS. ( just to clarify something ) In must places in USA is not the same thing a Marriage Licence than a marriage certificate. A marriage licence will only allow you to get marry and have a valid marriage certificate after a valida Marriage ceremony. I am not sure if in some places a license is the same thing.

To clarify, I have the marriage certificate issued from the Government of El Salvador which I will obviously need. I'm just questioning wether or not I will need the marriage license, which was drawn up by the lawyer and is signed by all of us. Thanks for any more help, good luck to all

Ok,

according to San Salvador Embasy web page, you just need to have your valid marriage certificate from El Salvador. Please review the Embassy webpage. i found a document that may clarify you.
