Marriage licence birth certificate issue

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Oklahoma requirements say I need a birth certificate  with a raised seal my official copy of my birth certificate has a seal but it’s not raised. Will this be a problem and if so is there  a way to get one with a raised seal from the uk quickly?

Which county is this? I’ve just looked at the website for a random OK county and no mention of a birth certificate, just government ID (your passport would suffice). Why not get the license in a neighboring county?

Seminole and time to get to another county is practically non existent with my fiancé’s schedule

Oklahoma does actually specifically require a birth certificate to always be presented along with foreign ID (including foreign passports).

 

Raised seals have actually been replaced with watermarks even by some US states such as Texas. The UK also does not issue birth certificates with raised seals. I suspect the information on the county's website is outdated. Providing you are presenting a certified copy, then you will be fine.

I forgot to mention - if you absolutely do want a raised seal, speak to an Apostille service. They can independently verify the validity of your document, and will usually stamp it with a raised seal.
