Hi, did anyone respond to you?  I have the same question.  I was married in Japan but want to register/record it in California.  On the internet it says I have to file a petition in Superior Court to establish a Court Order Delayed Certificate of marriage.

 

Thanks

Wondering what ended up happening with you both. I am getting married in Mexico in a few months & it’s looking like the same process when we return to the states (CA) if I want to change my name…..

I didn’t get married in a different country but in FL you go to clerk of court to register and then have so many weeks to file that a marriage took place. Almost like a temporary marriage license, after the wedding it is signed by the officiant and witnesses and then returned to your local county clerk of courts.

@Lovez:  Yep, that’s the process in most states however my state (CA & most Others) will only record their own certificates, no foreign certificates so I’m left with a marriage certificate in spanish with no record in the US…. I just called my local social security office & they said that they will accept the foreign spanish certificate for my name change- yippie!!
