I was married September 2013 in Turkey in a legal civil ceremony. All documents are translated and certified by the agency that issued them. Not ONE PROBLEM at the social security office. She barely blinked. She did say she gets a lot of Germany and Korea due to military, but never a Turkish one.
Enter DMV. As i step up to the counter and they see my Turkish marriage license, they had the BALLS to tell me that it is against the LAW to accept an international marriage license. They will only take US marriage licenses.
HAS ANYBODY ever had this problem or heard of such a thing? I have a new social and soon to be new passport, why can’t i get a new drivers license???

I would speak to someone higher up at the Colorado DMV

My marriage license is from Scotland. The VA DMV didn’t even blink at it. Talk to someone higher. That person was an idiot.

TO @jkchetinkaya: first and foremost as this is your DEBUT Post, a BIG Welcome to “the Hive”
Clearly the person you spoke to is CLUELESS
People get married the world over (and all over the world) every day. Including Americans & those who call Colorado home
What, this person has never hear of a Destination Wedding before ???
Makes no sense considering their job.
I am sadly guessing that you ran into a bit of “prejudice”
As in WHY IN THE WORLD would an American marry in Turkey (thought but not spoken)
And for that reason I would indeed RAISE THIS issue up “the Chain” to Management !!
I am sorry that you have had to face this
