Dating and marriage in japan nintendo wii stuck updating
Use this form in cases of two American people marrying one another.
These forms are required by Japanese law, and are not a requirement of the US Government.
No registration of your legal marriage abroad is required by the US Government, and your Japanese partner need not come to our offices.
After completing the affidavit form, please visit the US Embassy or Consulate to have the document notarized.
Get Married This is the part of this whole procedure that actually makes you and your partner "married." Once all the paperwork above is completed, proceed to the appropriate Japanese municipal government office.
To avoid any disappointment, be sure to confirm local marriage procedures and rules directly with municipal government officials.
If your partner is neither Japanese nor American, she or he should also contact his or her Embassy for the marriage procedures needed in their own country.
In addition, for Americans, you must be able to legally marry in your home state; if the legal age of marriage at home is 18, you cannot marry earlier than that in Japan.
We maintain no record of marriages in Japan and, under Japanese law, cannot later retrieve marriage records from a municipal government office.
Write down the name and address of the municipal government office that registered your marriage, as you'll need to contact them directly in the future to obtain proof of your marriage.
