The Marriage Process
Mexico, only LEGAL PROXY civil marriages are
recognized as legal. Persons wishing to do so may
also have a religious ceremony, but it has no
legal effect and does not replace in any way the
legal binding civil marriage. A civil wedding in
Mexico is fully valid for legal purpose in the
U.S. A ceremonial marriage can take place after
you civil marriage has been completed.
marriages are performed by the Civil Registry of
each municipality (Registro Civil).
proxy marriage will be performed by a Liscensed
duly appointed Registrar and properly recorded
Civil Marriages are performed at the premises of
the "Registro Civil".
You will need
to pay your Marriage License fee ,attorney, translation
and proxy stand-in fees. The cost is calculated and
provided as one simple fee, allow the waiting period
to go by (anything from 30 minutes to a few days,
depending on the State), and then the ceremony can take
place and the marriage will be legal.
expensive option is to have the ceremony performed at the
Local Registry Office.
Once the civil
ceremony has been completed, you will be sent a certified
copy of the marriage certificate (Acta de Matrimonio).
This will prove that you have been legally wed in
accordance with Mexican law, and the marriage will be
recognised just about everywhere in the world where it
can be, including the USA, Canada, United Kingdom / EU.
