Thank you for your reply.The Hindu marriage has happened after the year 1970.During those days marriage registration was not compulsory.We have only submitted the marriage certificate with its translation.The only proof we have are the old photos & Ration card name transfer ? Will that suffice the purpose ?Can you suggest any alternative?

requirements for birth registration
Dear Rosana

Thanks for your query

Now, to register your birth you have two options....
1) through the Portuguese consulate in Goa
2) give it to an agent

If you do it through from Portuguese consulate in Goa according to my experience it will take 4-12months,

If you do it through the agents it is quicker.,.. 3-4 months some agents take longer...

All the best for your process... also please check the email I have sent.

Attestation of documents
Dear Joao

I am certain that your Fathers Para Viagem and his Birth Certificate were issued by the concerned departments in Goa... if that the case then you will have to process the document st in the country where they were issued, cannot process they in UK, you will not be able to as well.

If these documents are old original documents in your possession, then you do not need to Attest them as they will work as old documents.

Hope this info helps.

Best Regards

Dear Elly

You have mentioned about the marriage certificate but not mentioned the year of marriage .... all baptism/marriage certificates issued up to 1969 from Mumbai are deemed as Civil Registration Certificates.

So if the concerned marriage happed after 1969, what initial proof or original proof actually issued during the time of marriage, have you submitted ?

The Latest registration of the Marriage is not valid because it opens opportunity for fraud.

If you wish to consult your case in details please get in touch with me on the number given below.

Best Regards

Dear Lizia

What my Solicitor in Portugal says is that if on a certificate is it mentioned. "This certificate is valid Upto six months from the date of issue", Then yes that certificate will expires after 6 months otherwise it is valid, he does not believe in what your have heard. He has done work with older certificates as well.

The concrete answer is that your certificate are still valid... but it depends who is submitting them to the CRC. They might tell you that they are not valid... but your solicitor should stand his ground.

It does not matter as very certificate will be individually verified by CRC from the concerned department in Goa/Mumbai/India

Hope this info helps you
