Overseas Marriage/Declaration of Marital Status

EXPERIENCED, TRUSTED, COST-EFFECTIVE

Generally speaking, if you follow the legal requirements for a valid marriage in the country in which you marry, your marriage will be considered valid in the UK. This is assuming you had the legal capacity to marry. You do not need to (and, in fact, cannot) register a foreign marriage in the UK.

If you are unsure about the validity of an overseas marriage, or if your spouse disputes the validity of the marriage, or if you are required to prove you were married on a particular date and you do not have any evidence (such as a marriage certificate), you may be able to apply for a Declaration of Marital Status.

This application would be made under Section 55 of the Family Law Act 1986.   If an application is made, the court can make one or more of the following declarations:-

(a)        a declaration that the marriage was at its inception a valid marriage;

(b)        a declaration that the marriage subsisted on a date specified in the application;

(c)        that the marriage did not subsist on the date so specified.
