Civil wedding in Germany, Bavaria, Garmisch-Partenkirchen

In the last time I have had a lot of requests from brides from the USA, Great Britain and Ireland about the requirements for a civil marriage or a church wedding in Garmisch.

The needs will probably be different, the informations depend on the country and the civil status of the individual but I´m going to show here some samples and will get back to the post with further informations in the future. 

Today, I´m starting with the 

Civil marriage 

Standesamtliche Trauung - Civil Marriage at the town house in Garmisch-Partenkirchen.

Based on the following assumptions:
1st marital partner unmarried (never bin married before), British nationality, living in Great Britain
2nd marital partner divorced 2014 (had been married once before with a British citizen), British nationality, living in Great Britain

Responsible for the banns (if no one of the couple lives in Germany and they want to get married in Garmisch-Partenkirchen) is the registry office at the town house in Garmisch-Partenkirchen.

There the couple has to fill out a form.

Normally you have to do this personally. If this is not possible it can be down on the postal way. EACH of the couple (bride and groom) has to fill out one form on his own, sign it and has to get it certified at the German consular office in Great Britain (certified that the content of the form was translated to him/her). The postal way has the disadvantage that the couple still has to see the registrar at the town house Garmisch-Partenkirchen before the wedding.

1st marital partner

  1. Certified copy of the passport
  2. Statement of the register of births
  3. Affidavit about the family status (unmarried) at the German consular office;
  4. Not necessary if you do the registration personally in Garmisch because they will do it there for you.
  5. Registration certificate for Great Britain
  6. Certificate of no impediment from a British registrar from the region of your home town.
2nd marital partner

  1. Certified copy of the passport
  2. Statement of the register of births
  3. Affidavit about the family status (divorced; number of marriages, no marriage since the last divorce) at the German consular office;
  4. Not necessary if you do the registration personally in Garmisch because they will do it there for you.
  5. Registration certificate for Great Britain
  6. Certificate of no impediment from a British registrar from the region of your home town.
  7. Statement of the marriage register from your 1. marriage
  8. Decree absolute with confirmation according to Art. 39 from the EG regulation No. 2201/2003 from Nov, 27th 2003. (If you show this confirmation the verdict will be admitted without further needs) 

All documents in English have to be translated by a translator admitted by a German court. Such a translator (admitted by a German court) must be present during the marriage at the town house.

The cost will be between € 200,-- to € 300,-- and the registration can not be done earlier then 6 months before the wedding date (because it is not longer then 6 months valid).
