Marriage certificate Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

Marriage certificates are issued by the registry office.

The marriage is entered in the marriage register of the registry office in whose jurisdiction the marriage was carried out ("notarized"). On the basis of this notarization - as long as the register entry has not yet been saved, also on the basis of a record - the registrar issues a marriage certificate on request. The application can be made orally, in writing or by fax.

In a marriage certificate:

  • first and last names of the spouses,
  • the place and day of their birth,
  • Religious affiliation and
  • Place and day of marriage

If the marriage is dissolved, a marriage dissolution note is entered in the marriage certificate as an indication This is a prerequisite for registering for a new marriage.

A certified printout from the marriage register may be issued.

For the use of a marriage certificate abroad, a multilingual extract from the marriage register may be created (interational document) or a legalization or apostille may be required.
