Another questions regarding Report of Marriage. What is the difference between the Marriage Record and Marriage Certificate? I do have Marriage Cert but for marriage record? I don’t know what they meant about that. Below are some requirments for ROM 

 

  1. One (1) original or certified true copy and four (4) photocopies of the Marriage Record (original will be returned)
  2. One (1) original or certified true copy and four (4) photocopies of the Marriage Certificate or Contract (original will be returned)

 

And do I need to notarized the duly-accomplished ROM form, If I am going to DC personally to process instead of mail? Thank you again! 😊

 Since you got married in New York and the New York consulate has jurisdiction over that area you have to go to New York to submit your ROM.

I got married here in PA. PA is under NY Jurisdiction according to their website. So i cannot renew and submit my ROM anywhere of the consular juristdiction? Just in Ny? I have a vacation in DC this March, and my place where i live at PA is more near and convenient going to Phil Embassy in DC than NY.

Opo. You have to do the ROM in the jurisdiction where you got married at. For example we got married in NC then moved to CA. When we had to do the ROM for my asawa we were forced to mail it in to DC because that jurisdiction over NC. We were in fact turned away from the Los Angeles consulate for that very same reason.

Report of Marriage must be completed through the consulate representing the state where you were married.  

 

Renewing the passport can be done at any consulate.
