Legal Requirements and Documents

Before diving into the exciting details of venue selection and decor, it's important to understand and comply with the legal requirements for getting married in Cabo San Lucas. As a reputable legal services provider, Karla Casillas ensures that your wedding is not only beautiful but also binding. Here are the key legal aspects to consider:

  1. Valid passports: Ensure that you and your partner have valid passports that will remain valid for at least six months after your wedding date.
  2. Tourist permits: Obtain tourist permits (FMM) upon arrival in Mexico. These will be provided at the immigration counter and should be kept securely throughout your stay.
  3. Original birth certificates: Bring original copies of you and your partner's birth certificates, which must be translated into Spanish and notarized.
  4. Divorce/death certificates (if applicable): If either of you has been previously married, bring the original divorce or death certificates, translated and notarized if necessary.
  5. Four witnesses: You will need four witnesses over the age of 18 to sign the legal documents. If you're having a destination wedding, Karla Casillas can provide witnesses if needed.
