My husband and I got married in Grand Cayman on Thursday. We were assured that the marriage is legal in the US but the marriage officiant.
My husband and I are both US Citizens, and live in Harris County in Texas. Does anyone have any familiarity with the process of getting your marriage certificate recognized in the US?

Simply Weddings is who married us. The marriage officiant wasn’t very clear on what to do. She does all the filing in Grand Cayman, but I’m wondering how I need to file it here in Texas. I’m assuming it needs to be filed with the County Clerk, but there’s really no information on how to do it.

I was married in the Caribbean, and the only thing we had to do after our honeymoon was appear at our local county office with our unofficial marriage license. They processed and notarized the license there. Then I was able to go ahead and file for new SS card, drivers license, etc. I also called way before the wedding to verify what our responsibilities would be if we were not getting married in our state. U might want to do the same.

You need to check with your local county probate office or whoever does the marriage license processing. We are getting married out of the country in October and when I asked my local county clerk about any reporting or processing of an international marriage license, they said they don’t do anything with it and that I would simply take my marriage license to the SS office if I were to do a name change, etc. So it really depends on your local county if/what you need to do with your license now.

So basically, what its looking like is that the State of Texas won’t recognize our marriage, and that we need to pay an additional fee for a marriage license in the state (~67-73) and we will have to find a judge to marry us again (hopefully no more than 100). <br /><br />So ridiculous.
