hi its really very important and urgent to know?
i am getting married in india with my girlfriend she is a canadian citizen and i am a indian citizen, and we will do traditional marriage then register our marriage in marriage registrar office. i am from madhya pradesh and here we have to register our marriage in collectorate office. only problem which is coming is a document which is asked by marriage registerar and which is very strange for me, he said that he need a letter from canada stating my gf marriage status and no objection certificate from canadian goverment. me and my gf are never married before, and i looked online for documents needed for marriage registeration in india and i did not find any document like this. All it says a letter from priest some pictures and two affidavit of bride and grrom and three witness presented during marriage ceremony.
Our marriage will be registered under special marriage act.

Harpreet,

What do you mean by traditional marriage ? Anand Karaj ? Then you will register your marriage after the fact. However, if you intend to use the SMA, you will have to follow the requirements of the nearest Officer, and those of your state.

Registration of marriages (including SMA) is a State Function.

The following are the essential conditions to be fulfilled for the registration of the marriage under Special Marriage Act:
  1. That neither party has a spouse living at the time of marriage.
  2. That neither party is incapable of giving a valid consent to the marriage due to unsoundness of mind.
  3. That neither party has been suffering from mental disorder of such a kind or to such an extent as to be unfit for marriage and the procreation of children.
  4. That neither party has been subject to recurrent attacks of epilepsy or insanity.
  5. That the bridegroom has completed the age of 21 years and the bride the age of 18 years at the time of marriage.
  6. That the parties are not within the degrees of prohibited relationship.
However where a custom governing at least one of the parties permits a marriage between them, such marriage may be solemnized non withstanding that they are within the degrees of prohibited relationship as follows:

DEGREES OF PROHIBITED RELATIONSHIP
  1. Mother
  2. Father's widow (step mother)
  3. Mother's mother
  4. Mother's father's widow (step grand mother)
  5. Mother's mother's mother
  6. Mother's mother's father's widow
  7. Mother's father's mother
  8. Mother's father's father's widow (step great grand mother)
  9. Father's father's widow (step grand mother)
  10. Father's mother's mother

Here is the question: I am sure someone from Knada will clarify, does the Canadian Embassy in New Delhi require SMA ? Or an Anand Karaj, and post marriage registration with the State, and then duly notarized/appostiled will do ?

You have two options:

1. Get married under SMA and then do an Anand Karaj ceremony. This requires a pre-notification.

2. Do Anand karaj, and then post marriage get it registered.

Whatever you do, do ask the Gurudwara where you will get married, or the giani what the post marriage registration procedures are.

It would be better to follow The Special Marriage Act, 1954.

It is universal all over India.

The Registrar is correct. You need this letter. The Canadian high commission will charge your girlfriend $30 for this letter.

You will have to go for a proper name change process.

For change of name from maiden to married or vice versa, the following additional documents are required:
  • Notarized affidavit.
  • Notarized copy of the first and last page of passport of spouse.
  • A joint photograph.
  • Notarized copy of marriage certificate or divorce deed duly authenticated by court, as applicable.
Please elaborate your case as you have not mentioned about proof of your marriage... Have you got any?

Was this Nikahnama ever registered by the Qazi ? It seems that you got married at the age 19, in presence of few friends, but did not use your married given name henceforth. You'd have to check with the Board to which the Qazi notified of the marriage. Have your spouse chase the qazi and get the relevant document, then have it registered with the registrar.

Are you applying for Visa or Immigration ? Some countries will accept the nikahnama, and rest do not. So it depends on the country you are going to and the type of visa you are applying for.

Then you can carry your original name. No one will object to it...

You will have to mention the details of person/organization, who will meet your expenses during your trip...

If you are meeting your own expenses, then 3 years IT returns and six months bank statement will be required to be submitted.

As a part of the Nikah, you must have signed a paper ? The Qazi issues a document. You have to get that notarized, and approach your local registrar to have it entered/registered.

I am a bit confused - Do you mean visa or do you mean immigration ? They are two different legal and transactional statuses. Unless we know what kind, and which country, it is impossible to help you.

Any visa, based on marriage to USA, will require a valid registered marriage license, translated and authenticated. On top of it, since there is no-correlation between your given name, and the name used in the Nikahnama, a legal procedure of some sort will have to be initiated.

Praakant and others in India are more familiar with it.
