Hello people. I need help with something my girlfriend a citizen of Europe living in Lithuania and I citizen of India are planning to marry next year. I check out forum here and got to all about documents required to get married under special marriage act. But my girlfriend doesn't have a birth certificate and for some reason it is nearly impossible to acquire her birth certificate. Can we get married in India without her birth certificate? Can any other document replace birth certificate? Also will she need to produce no impedent certificate? Kindly reply we are planning to get married in Delhi.

Where was she born? Is she stateless? Does she have a travel document? If so, who issued it?

And, by the way, there is no such thing as a citizen of Europe.

Sorry my mistake regarding citizen of Europe. She is an orphan actually. She was born in Poland but later moved to Lithuania. And right now living in Rigo and working there only. Her nationality is Lithuanian on her passport.
Is there anyway we can replace her birth certificate sir ? She has all her other school leaving certificates and all. I read somewhere a British girl used her passport for age and identity to get married here in India

Birth certificate. Is it really necessary?

I probably had mine handy at the time because I'm the sort of person who takes everything just in case.

Please excuse. I read the Special Maria get Act so many times a decade or so, it's tough to go through it again. But is birth certificate specifically mentioned?

Recently, I did need mine for another purpose. I didn't want to trust my old, hand-written one to international post, so I got a new copy. Ordered, paid online... Received in a very few weeks.

But that was UK. Other countries may differ, better or worse.

Do you mean "Riga"? That's in Latvia. Does she have a Lithuanian passport?

Actually she will be in Germany next year and will work there for a year we could get married there. But we plan to reside in India in future and to get her x visa or OCI card I will have to marry her here in India even if I m already married to her there.

Except that if you marry in Germany you do not need to marry again in India for visa, OCI, or anything except maybe personal wish for religious ceremony.

When your wife applies for visa, they will not care where you got married, so long as they have documents they can see and understand.

The Indian process, though, is relatively simple. From what I've read here over the years, Germany is not such an easy place to do this stuff.

Yes mainly we want to settle in India. I also know it's not easy to get married in Europe for a non European now bcz of immigrant crisis. Yes Indian process seems simple to me also. Hopefully we can get married here itself like many other foreign couple. We just want to marry legally. None of us is religious or want any sort of ceremony.

I would not recommend to get married in Germany. It is a complicated and lengthy process. And there is no way to get married without a birth certificate.

Go to your marriage registrar in Delhi and ask for the needed papers for the marriage under the Special Marriage Act. Only there you will be told what you need exactly and if they want both of you to stay there for 30 days or if it is enough if you are there.

The basics for SMA are the same. However, the document requirements vary by district. Where (which Klony) in Delhi do you live in ? The sub-registrar is the one you have to meet for giving notice& getting married.
