When we marry, it is not so difficult to assemble the pieces needed to create your file. However, it is necessary to meet time limits: send all your information at the town hall where you get married two months before the wedding date. This prevents stress and surprises ...
Before anything else, call the registrar in the town hall where you choose to marry civilly. Make a date, and then ask the list of all the parts you need to provide.
Marriage: Photocopies and certificates
This is the town hall we inquired about all the modalities for establishing a track record of marriage. All municipalities require the same parts, namely:
MariagePhotocopie paper identification documents of both spouses;
Proof of residence of the spouses (if two different brides and grooms do not live together again);
Complete copy of the birth certificate not older than 3 months from the date of marriage for both spouses;
Notary's certificate if a marriage contract is concluded between the bride and groom;
Photocopy of identity card of witnesses
In case of remarriage of a spouse, you must provide: either the death certificate of previous spouse, or the documents establishing the finality of a divorce or annulment of a previous marriage.
Marriage: Foreign nationality
For foreign nationals, other documents may be requested, such as birth certificates or certificates of celibacy translated by certified translators. Learn quickly with the council and the embassy about you, because if translators work in record time, sometimes the steps abroad can take much longer.
Some registrars will need to call the bride and groom at a prior hearing, or two separate. This is often the case when one of the spouses is a foreign national. This will complete the hearing record for the publication of banns.
When all elements are present, the mayor may then proceed with the publication of banns. This is an official notice on the door of the town hall, which provides for each prospective spouse's name, first name, occupation, domicile or residence, the place where the marriage will be celebrated.
This view is primarily intended to allow those who know a case of impediments to marriage, to oppose them. Marriage may be celebrated before the tenth day following the display.
Marriage: Steps on the internet
It is now possible to do in France, demand for birth certificates by internet. Simply to visit the site: www.acte-state-civil.fr. This site may redirect you directly to the website of your municipality of birth, if it has its own web form filling.
