Mexican Law/Marriage certificate Q, same as Jim


To get a copy of my marriage certificate, I need to contact the registry office. However I don't speak Spanish. Any suggestions?

Hi Ella,

This isn't really a legal question, but I will give you two suggestions...

1) You might try to call the nearest Mexican Consulate. At times, Mexican Consular officials are surprisingly helpful. They might even make the calls for you.

2) I am not sure where you live in Canada, but generally, Spanish speaking persons are to be found in just about any village or hamlet anywhere in the US or Canada. I am sure that with a little looking, you can find someone to help. You might want to call the Canadian equivalent of Social Services or local schools or universities.

Hope this helps...
