Your officiant should be dealing with a fair amount of this paperwork so they should be able to lead you in the right direction. Keep in mind that your matrimonial regime will likely be determined by your common residence after the marriage(BC) so if you need a prenup or anything… that would be some other paperwork to handle.

Yeah I’m not looking forward to this. I’m a Canadian that will be marrying an Australian in BC and we’ll be living in the states for a few years. 

I’ve got a whlie to figure it out what’s the best paperwork for me to be able to work in the states.

@CarmenDoyle575:  I’m in the same siutaiton.  It appears to me that we don’t need any special paperwork (byond a marriage lisence) to get married in BC.  It says this on the marriage lisence website somewhere.  

Of course, you do need the right visas for him to live here.  Sounds like you already know all about that.

@CarmenDoyle575:  H and I got married in BC and we’re both Americans.  It was really easy surprisingly!  But we returned to the US afterwards.
