I’m getting married in Jamaica and they require a notarized copy of our birth certificates. I went to 5 different places in the state and they all told me that notaries are not allowed to notarize “vital records”. They told me to go to my town hall and just get a duplicate certified copy. I’m not too keen on sending a dupicate real copy of my birth certificate to another country, and i heard that you do not get it back. Has anyone had an issue getting their BC notarized? I might try to make a few more stops before i admit defeat and pay for a duplicate!

@LoveLikeCrazy: Double check what they need – I would assume that they’re actually asking for a certified copy. Meaning it’s been stamped (similar to a notary) stating the copy someone made is identical to the original.

@Soon2BeMrsS: Thanks for the reply! I did contact the WC and she stated they only need a notarized copy. I contacted my TA because she got married at the same resort and she said she went to a local bank and they ended up notarizing it and that i should try that route.
I guess i’m just more leary of an actual hard copy duplicate of my BC floating around somewhere, esp bc it is delivered to miami then jamaica.
Maybe i’m just being too over cautious haha
