Hi folks, I will be getting married in the Philippines in December of this year. I think i have a pretty good idea of what we need to get done and was hoping someone could verify I'm not missing anything, or if my info is incorrect for my side of the equation anyway. When i first arrive in Manilla I will need to get an Affidavit of Marital Status from the embassy there. To do this I will need to pay the fee and present my passport and a long form birth certificate. Is there anything else required? Once we get the affidavit (which should be the same day?) we will travel to Butuan and apply for a marriage certificate, which I believe takes 12 consecutive days in Butuan (can anyone confirm?). Hopefully this isn't business days. For this process or the visa process after I've read in a few places that you need to have your long form birth certificate notarized or translated, I've also read you don't. Can anyone who has been through this process confirm this for me? I's sure i'll have additional questions on this process and the visa process as we move along. Thanks in advance for your help, Dave.
