Hi my name is Chad and my girlfriend in Brasil is named Carol. We both are trying to get married their in Brasil. That is our first step and i am a little lost on how to do everything and i have no idea where i need to go. I know i need get both my birth certificate and my single status notarized and translated. I have no idea how to do that. Also i don't know how to get a single status affidavit or whatever they were telling me on the websites or how to do that. I know i am very lost and i would love to just be able to talk to someone who can help walk me through the process and i will be able to do everything. My girlfriend lives in Joao Pessoa so if we need to go to the US consulate in Recife that is not too far away i live in washington state and i need to go through the San Francisco consult but i can never get anyone to talk to there so i can get any information. If anyone has any help o would allow me to call them or chat with them i would love the help!! :) Thank you and i hope someone can help me!

I have no idea what the requirements are to marry in Brazil. Wouldn't your girlfriend know?

The US government has nothing to do with your marriage in Brazil until you have gone through the Brazilian process first. So in other words, you gather all the documents that Brazil requires for marriage, get married there, and THEN apply for the visa for your new spouse through USCIS. These forums are for that last part of the process, so nobody is really going to know what Brazil's specific requirements are.

For your birth certificate and proof that you are legally able to marry, I'd start at the county courthouse where you were born and are currently a resident, respectively, and go from there.

Also, the only consulate that handles fiancé/spousal visas in Brazil is in Rio. So once you reach that stage of the process, your spouse will have to travel there for the interview.

Thank you very much and yeah me and her looked into it it seems that we just need the birth certificate and the proof that i can marry and that is about it. Other than that its just the 30 day waiting period and marking the date. Also translating and notarizing everything which also isn't that bad. Thanks :)
