As before, there are a number of ways of obtaining a marriage certificate for those who were married in the UK but then have lived as a married couple in Spain.
You can find information as well as order a copy of the certificate here: UK Marriage Certificates.
Once you have received your copy of the marriage certificate you will need to send it to the UK Government’s legalisation service for the Apostille stamp to be attached.
Instructions on how to do this can be found on the Foreign & Commonwealth Office website.
You will then have a legalised copy of the marriage certificate and will need to have it translated by an official translator before use by the court. A comprehensive list of approved official translators can be downloaded from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs website or simply contact Advocate Abroad for approved translators in your area.
Please note that should birth certificates of any children of the marriage born in the UK be required the same links can be used to find out more information and to order copies.
Once the legalised copy of the marriage/birth certificates have been arranged you will then need to hand them over to the procurador for presentation to the court.
