Legalised Marriage CertificatesMarriage Certificates in US

Express Divorce FAQ - Main benefits

The specific procedure for obtaining a legalised certificate of marriage should be verified by checking the relevant County Recorder’s Office Website.

However the process is not very different from the process described in UK and Ireland above.

So for example, if you were married in Las Vegas, you can obtain information on how to Order a Marriage Certificate and Order An Apostille from the same website.

Of course you will need to locate the relevant website for the area in which you were married in the US to get the correct procedure.

As before, once the certified certificate has been obtained you will need to send it to an official translator.

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.

    Francisco and Carmen did a great job handling my divorce. In this difficult time for me, they handled the issues with understanding and flexibility.


    Francisco was very good in court and he could defend well against all the challenges made to the pre-nuptial contract my husband and I signed, so that it was upheld in full.

    Rosa is the consummate professional. Her responses to messages were always prompt and her advice was extremely helpful.


    Even when my ex wife employed a lawyer who really didn’t know what he was doing, she was very patient and logical. She provided an excellent service.


    She is the best advocate I have ever been associated with. I was a police officer for 30 years and have come into contact with many lawyers. She is amazing!

    Overall it was great. Rosa always answered all questions asked and provided clear, concise and well explained answers.


    When there was a delay in responding she did offer an apology which was appreciated. Rosa always instilled a sense of confidence that she knew exactly what was going on, what I was asking, and what the applicable law was.


    When not a Spanish local and dealing with her remotely, this provided great comfort in a sensitive matter.

    From our initial meeting right through to my ultimate divorce (with no unpleasant surprises the entire duration of the entire process), he immediately responded to my many enquiries, always had mine and my daughter's best interests at the forefront of any considerations and was well worth every penny of his extremely reasonable fee.

    Her pro-active, intelligent, thoughtful and knowledgeable advice helped very much during a particularly delicate and worrying stage of the process.
