Foreigners Getting Married in Poland - a Guide to Formal Preparation

I got married in 2009 in the municipal building. On that day the office worker took my original birth certificate and I took home a color scan of it. Now I am in need of the original birth certificate but my wife says that I can not get it back which I think is just her not wanting to deal with it (I don't speak Polish so I would need her help in retrieving it).

So when one gets married in Poland, is this proper legal procedure to take one's original birth certificate and store it at the municipal building?

They do require the birth certificate but it's not needed to be the original, it could be the official copy of the birth certificate, according to what your country's embassy in Poland suggests.

You should convince your wife to go to the municipal office to find out if you can get it back, and then turn in an official copy instead, with a translation.

Ok the birth certificate was translated when we got married already. All we will have to do is hand in the color copies then.

Thanks.

Actually the translation of the original one doesn't work, because you need the translation of the official copy of birth certificate which states "this copy of birth certificate is true to the original".

So you need to have someone translate it again.

The Indian guy who want s to get married in Poland but lives in England is trying to circum-navigate the UK immigration controls. He is obviously illegally here in the UK and thinks if he can marry a Polish girl he can stay being married to an EU National. He has no interest in her apart from that or he would get married in the UK which is easier but he can't because he is here illegally.

Translation: I want to get a Polish residence permit, working permit and an entry into the EU.
I thought LT or LV fake marriages these days are much cheaper as Polish ones?

sorry to bump an old thread but I am in need of some help. I am recently married here in the US. We did a town hall thing to make it legal and official here in the US but we are planning the big reception and party in Poland next year as thats where the wife is from and I do have family there. I have never met them but thats a whole other thing. Anyway, I dont care if the wedding is "official" in Poland. While my wife would like to have the whole church wedding, she is aware of the great many hoops that need to be jumped through to make this happen and has accepted the fact that it may not happen. We are looking for someone to perform a ceremony. The guests at the wedding dont know that we are already married except for a select few so this is important. We have the hall booked and are wondering if there is someone that would come in and perform a ceremony there. The ceremony at that point may be just for show, and not have any legality to it in Poland but we dont care. We are married in America and thats where we are going to live. I know I could have a friend take an online course, get ordained and perform something but I am trying to do something much more classy. Anyone have any ideas about something like this?

You cannot be married again, that's impossible.
You will however be able to get a 'blessing' from a priest......but it's a different ceremony and you won't be able to pull the wool over the regular church goers in the crowd........which I presume would be your missus' parents.

Nice try though, best of luck :)

A brown envelope with a suitable large amount of cash for Curia funds should allow you to do as you please.

The Church administration is notoriously corrupt.

hi can somebody help me?!Im a filipina, just want to ask about the legalization of my marriage with a Polish guy. I'm just a bit confuse, our marriage certificate was issued in Manila and someone told me that if our papers was issued here in Phil we must go to Kuala Lumpur. Is it true that we have to go to Kuala Lumpur? or is it possible to file it here in the Philippines? My husband is planning to legalize our marriage in UK when we go there next year. We got married last January and we still don't know where should we endorse our papers. Does it have a penalty if we didn't send it right after we received our certificate of marriage?

Thanks for your help! God bless! :)

"Someone" is talking nonsense. What has Malaysia got to do with this? If your marriage certificate is legal in the Philippines, you have nothing to worry about.

Unfortunately you have not understood something or someone.
First, as neither you nor your husnband are UK citizens there is nothing for you to 'legalise' in the UK.
Second, your husband being an EU national can come to the UK whenever he likes, you cannot without the relevant visa/ permit.
Your husband will have to qualify to bring you to the UK, there are several ways to do this.
He has to have a permanent employed position where he resides currently that pays him the equivalent of £18,600 per year, he must have held this position for at least 6 months and also have a permanent position of employment that he can start within 3 months of entering the UK of a similar amount.

He can move to the UK on his own and so long as he has permanent employment that pays him the minimum amount as above after 6 months you can then apply for a visa/ spouse permit.

Another option is for you both to have a sum of £62,300 in liquid savings that you have held for at least 6 months, after 2.5 years you must still have this liquid money at your disposal. For the next 2.5 years some of this money can be used subject to certain conditions. Monetary loans, houses etc.. do not qualify.

It is a moot point but if your husband was a UK national then you both would be invited to KL for interview.

Hi Reistlin. I don't know whether I'm not too late but my suggestion is rationalist wedding. It's a secular ceremony, which from what I can gather is not legally binding yet in Poland, but will allow you to make the ceremony very personal. Just goole it and see what you think. I'm considering it myself as an alternative to the church wedding

legally

Little correction, I meant humanist wedding oficiated by the Rationalist Association

Hi. Is it possible to get married with a Polish citizen if I'm an illegal immigrant? Will the registrar office question about it? I've been together with my boyfriend for two years and he decided if he marry me I can stay in Poland legally. But I'm illegal now. Is that possible? Really need your help. Thank you.

It depends which denomination. Most Protestant churches will marry divorced people and there are Protestant churches in all large Polish towns.
