Looking for Marriage advocate in Mumbai
Quote:In the interest of completeness, and clarity for future generations who might make this kind of error in Bhambay !!! I will fill the background sans identity.
The OP, raised concern in his original post, about an individual in the Marriage resistrar's office who it was alluded to, was asking for a bribe. As it turns out, the individual; let's call him the protagonist is indeed the signed/named "Christian Marriage Registrar" which is a person who registers Christian marriages. Which means, to ensure that in an event of divorce (or annulment) the laws guiding the christian marriages in India are followed, this registrar will have a list of documents that satisfies the requirement.
The OP wanted to get married under Special Marriage Act, which is civil/court marriage a.k.a religious agnostic. So in spirit and law, SMA would marry a Ticuna woman with a Ubuntu follower, no proof needs whether one had been ever a non-Ubuntu or sunos follower However, Hindu, Parsi, Christian marriage acts do have stipulations.
A Christian Marriage registrar is not a deacon, he may or may not be a church blessed person to perform christian/religious marriages. The registrar for Special Marriage Act will have no religion specific requirement.
Normatively speaking in Bhambay, a.k.a Bombay a.k.a Mumbai, depending on where you live, and how one was married; one goes either downtown a.k.a Churchgate/Fort/Nariman Point area to Mantralaya to register one's marriage (or get married under Special Marriage Act) or go to Baandra if one lives in the 'burbs from Mahim through Borivali.
One would only approach the Hindu Marriage registrar, or Christian Marriage Registrar if one wanted their marriages registered under the forsaid marriages.
[BTW. I am not a marriage lawyer, nor am I a resident of Bhambay. However, I spent time, and know many many folks who got married in Juhu church and Mahim church through decades and subsequently moved to faraway shores...]
