marriage certificate is given right after the wedding but it's not the one used as the document to prove a marriage. Ur maybe referring to the Marriage license. It is requested and can be asked 5 days after the wedding, depending on how fast records offices work smile.gif Just inquire at the courthouse near u. have a wonderful wedding smile.gif

From what I've "heard" the process of getting NSO Certified Certificates of Marriage as been accellerated.
When we were married in 2005 it could take up to 6 months to get one.
I made a "donation" and got ours in one month tho!

I hope your Asawa is living near Manila, because from whet I remember it took almost 2 weeks to get it certified where you filed for the license, then after you get it you take it to where they do the passports in Manila pay another fee and wait a day or 2, then pick it up and take it to the Presidents Office near the Ayala Bridge in Manila pay another fee and pick it up 1 or 2 days later then it has the red Ribbon on it. meaning it is fully certified. Seemed to me like we were always standing in line to have this done and it seems very frustrating how many times you have to have it Certified and pay more and more each time you give to another Office, the Fees are not that much but it is the thought of being shaked down every time you go to have it Certified, was driving me crazy..

That's MALACAŅANG certification not National Statistics Office!


You don't have to get the marriage license or anything certified by [MALACAŅANG] for US immigration purposes.
I've seen where other countries require it tho!

Marriage license is issued in the municipality of one of party resides. You have to wait for 10 working days to get it. After which, you submit it to the church for your wedding. You can have your marriage certificate from the church a week after. The church will submit a copy of marriage certificate to the city hall. Th city hall will forward a copy to NSO and that will take time. To facilitate that, you can go to the NSO, bring your copy. Then NSO will issue your marriage certificate in NSO security paper , of course you have to pay.

Our priest took over a month to get our marriage contract returned to the LCRO. When we started trying to get the new NSO marriage certificate documents we discovered they still were not in the NSO system yet, so the service manager (at NSO) explained to me that I should go back to the provincial Local Civil Register Office (LCRO) and try to see if they HADN'T already sent the documents to Manila. If they hadn't already sent the documents to Manila I could request an Electronic Document Endorsement and then take it to the regional NSO office and they would be able to get us our official NSO marriage certificate.

I was able to pay a small fee for the Electronic Endorsement along with a certified copy of our marriage contract and I took it to our regional NSO office in Surigao. Armed with this EE and our CTC of our marriage contract I was able to go to the NSO and they created a new 'official' marriage certificate within about 20 minutes.

If our documents had already been forwarded to Manila NSO either directly by the LCRO or via the local NSO, then the service manager said it could take 6 months before we got our new NSO marriage certificate.
