    Default Dominican Republic marriage certificate

    Hi and happy new year

    I am not living in the DR any more, how do I get a copy of my DR marriage certificate please?

    Also, if I leave it to me ex to do the divorce, all straight forward, what should that cost in pesos?

    You get your dr marriage certificate at a JCE ( junta central electoral---- i think ), cost should be 400 pesos for a normal one..... ( inextensa one could be a 100 pesos more, i cant remember ).

    No idea for a divorce.

    Don't give the money to your dominican ex to do the divorce. He will probably spend the money on something he feels is more important like drinking with his buddies. If you want something done do it yourself.

    Not too sure tbh....... it has a couple of lines more than the regular marriage certificate.
    The " regular " one is extracto de acta de matrimonio ,
    And the other is acta inextensa de matrimonio .

    The only difference i see is the latter has each party's place and date of birth.

    I would phone the JCE of the circunscription where the marriage was celebrated, to check if the marriage is on a digital database.
    It is only recently that there is a database, before they looked it up in a physical book at your JCE.
    Apparently now you can request a certificate in any JCE ( but i haven't tried, always go to my initial local JCE ).
    You will also probably have to have the act legalisado, not available in small towns...... but for around 300 pesos a guy at the JCE will send it to be done for you in a big town like santiago ( in my case ).

    You can search your specific JCE in the list and get phone number and address .

    Can this be gotten if you are not here , or do you need to provide a lawyer with power of attorney to get one?

    Good luck with that. You emailed them in Spanish right?

    Let us know, miracles do happen, so I am told.

    I just recently found out when obtaining a legalised birth certificate that this is no longer possible. There was an official notification of this posted on the service window at JCE in Sosua. I had to go to Santiago to get it legalised.
