What kind of birth certificate do I need to present in order to get married in Poland?

What kind of birth certificate do I need to present in order to get married? My father has a copy of the original but I can also order a new one online. I can either get "computer certification" or "photocopy certification".

Does anyone know which type is required?

We'd like to have a civil wedding in Poland in September so hopefully we'll have enough time.

Thanks.

Get both, and make sure that they're no older than 3 months at the time of submitting them to the USC. You'll need to get them translated into Polish by a sworn translator, and you should get to the USC in June for a September wedding.

Great. Thanks for the quick reply. You helped me last time I posted here but I want to make sure I have the process down:

1. Gather documents and get them translated

2. Go to the Regional court and petition for an exemption using the letter from the US embassy (I think I need to hire a translator as well). I need an appointment for this -- can my future mother in law make the appointment for me? The decision will be made on the day and will be finalised in 3 weeks.

3. The same day as the above, go the USC to register the wedding. I understand that you can't make an appointment for this but the decision from the above does not need to be final.

4. One month later or longer, get married.

Thank you so much for your time.

Good question, I'm not actually sure. Maybe the easiest way will be to get a lawyer to handle the court process on your behalf?

Okay, thanks. Finally, do you know if the birth certificate needs an Apostille certificate attached to it? Probably best I just hire a lawyer...

Mmm...most probably it will need it. I'm an EU citizen so I've never had these problems, but I've got one document from the US that needed to have the Apostille attached in order for it to be accepted.
