How to recover a marriage certificate?

If you suddenly lost your marriage certificate under any unforeseen circumstances, do not rush to panic. And all because it is very easy to recover any evidence. Let's take a look at how to recover a marriage certificate.

Certificate Recovery Procedure

A marriage certificate is an official document confirming the existence of a marriage and family relationship of a couple. In order to restore it, you will need to contact the registry office and provide a passport with a corresponding note that the marriage was actually registered. In the civil registration authority, you will need to inform the worker that you have indeed lost the marriage certificate. This will be followed by the receipt of a form in which you need to write the reason for which you want to restore the certificate.Very often, the reason column indicates the loss of the document. This application is made in the name of the head of the registry office. The next thing you need to do is pay the state fee, which is now 200 rubles. After you do this in the nearest branch of the bank, you will need to return and give the receipt to the registrar. A copy of the passport and the application must be attached to the receipt, as the lost certificate will be restored on the basis of these documents.

Now you just have to wait for the employees of the relevant state body to make you a repeat certificate, on the corner of which the word “Duplicate” will be written. Very often the testimony is restored on the same day.

In the same way, you can restore the certificate of divorce, and indeed any document that was prepared by the registrar. To obtain a second certificate, one of the spouses may file an application, since the presence of the second is not required by law in this procedure.
