It does not matter where the marriage took place, as long as its notarized and attested with the local authorities!

Without the marriage certificate it not possible to register a marriage! A marriage can be done anywhere doesn't matter!

You do not need anyone's approval for registering birth or marriage, its not going to harm them by registering, their birth or marriage. Once your marriage registration is done, your children can apply as well....

Hello Ray...Thankyou for giving clarity of thought to lot of questions on this forum....I wanted to confirm for the second stage of Marriage registration....The Applicant (Wife) birth registration is in process at the registry .The query is.. the marriage of year 1977 is not yet registered in India and certificate is also not acquired.With what options can the Applicant (Wife) go ahead with the marriage registration (i.e after the completion of first process at the registry)… as at this point of time the spouse(Husband) of the applicant is not willing to go ahead with the Nationality...Can the hindu marriage still be registered in Portugal with only one parents approval? The Applicant (Wife) wants to register the birth of her son in the third process.Valuable inputs from you will be highly appreciated...thankyou in advance.

Hello, I have a query regarding surnames.

I am currently holding an Indian passport wherein my father’s surname is recorded as “De Souza” and my mother’s surname is recorded as “DSouza”. My father’s surname is correct. However my mother’s surname is spelt differently. It should have been entered the same like my father’s as she took his surname. Also her maiden surname was “Almeida”. Will this cause a problem for me when applying for Portuguese nationality?

I had been to the Passport office and could not reason with the staff. They say that an affidavit has to be made. However my mother does not have any document having the correct “De Souza” spelling. Her birth certificate has “Almeida” and there is no document having her name recorded as “Almeida e De Souza” to make the affidavit.

If anyone can advice please let me know. Thanks.
