  • Shelly then I am warning you once again!! I'm always right lol
  • Shelley - I did forget to just warn you about advice you receive. Alethia is a first rate immigration lawyer and knows intimately the laws in regard to this subject. I am an expert in Tunisia having lived here for many years. I understand this cu…
  • Sally - here is what you need to bring: Original birth certificate no older than 21 days before date of marriage - note that it MUST be an original. You should bring your original marriage certificate along with the divorce documents You must hav…
  • Ummmm - mountain oasis?? Exactly in which mountain are you talking about
  • Alethia - please can I have Euros instead??
  • Melody - exactly what do you mean by 'kind of living in the US'?? If you are not a legal resident of the US or a citizen there is no way your 'boyfriend' can get a visa - even to Mexico. Please understand that Tunisian boys troll the web/fb/lonel…
  • haminhan - there is a very, very good travel agent operating in Indochine. I actually took a tour of Vietnam with them, although a long time ago. I think it is called Indochine tours and it was owned by a couple of Aus guys. I know that they are …
  • Mozak - your fiancee must have permission from the Tunisian Embassy in Morocco to marry there. It can be hit and miss as usually the Tunisian should hold residency in the country in which they wish to marry. She should enquire with the Ministry he…
  • Mozak - I have sent you a reply to your message. Your f.i.l. should continue supplying the details that the Ministry want. This will be the only chance I think. Good luck
  • jcd - firstly I'm sorry for you and I hope you can put this behind you. I am presuming that he divorced you? If you were living in tunisia he would be legally required to pay you and for your child but this is not enforceable outside Tunisia. It …
  • lisa8 - the best is the Eu, but at a pinch you can take USD.
  • If a man, any man of any nationality hits his wife or in fact any woman then he is a coward of the worst kind. No man should raise a hand to any woman. Libbylou - are you that desperate that you are willing to risk hospitalisation or even death at…
  • Personally I have had nothing stamped - only the translation of my marriage contract. Been living here for 100 years and never had to have anything stamped by the Ministry of Justice or l'etrangers!!
  • kimmo - I have never heard that you need the contract taken to Tunis to get it stamped. The UK recognises foreign marriages held outside of the UK as long as it is legal in the country in which it is performed. Alethia should correct me if I am wr…
  • Kimmo - my presumption is that you are marrying in Tunis? Who performed the marriage - a notaire? The notaire will register the marriage and stamp the documents for the court. Your husband will need to ensure that the notaire has done this in ord…
  • No, it's only your birth certificate that needs to be no older than 21 days. All the other documents are still ok.
  • The notaire must certify the contract otherwise it is not legal. The notaire probably said that it needed to go to the Ministry of Justice. You can request a number of originals and they can all be certified. You can then have them translated and …
  • kimmo - where are you getting married?
  • Perhaps I wasn't clear. He should register his marriage at the Embassy in Jakarta. Then he should ensure this appears on his birth certificate otherwise he cannot prove that he is married
  • qyerni - please be sure to register the marriage as soon as you can so it will be on your certificate de naissance. You will need this for the visa for your wife.
  • qyerni - you can visit Indonesia for a maximum of 30 days visa free. That should give you enough time to be married. Indonesian Embassy in Tunis, Tunisia 15, Rue du Lac Malaren Les Berges du Lac BP 58 Berges du Lac 1053 Tunis Tunisia TELEPHONE (…
  • I just wanted to make another comment, although you can marry at the office of the municipality you can also marry at a salle de fete or indeed in the home if you wish using a notaire. All methods are legal and acceptable in Tunisia. My own marria…
  • Just so everyone is clear - the family will be hurt, humiliated and shamed but that is all. Unless - your friend actually signed the contract when they became engaged and that is a whole other story. This is quite common here for a marriage contrac…
  • If neither of you need a lawyer then it is quite easy. A notaire can make all the dox for you and you can both sign. Your husband should attend the court (and it is quicker if you also attend) and it can be done in that day. A notaire can cost ar…
  • Hike -I certainly agree with Ella. Having visited Cambodia a number of times there is absolutely no way on this earth that I would entertain driving myself around. Also you can't rely on the mechanical qualities of any car that you rent. They are …
  • Mozak - yes I live in Tunis. I know how the system works here believe me it can be difficult to navigate unless you know someone who knows someone.
  • Mozak - forget interpol - they don't care. Please listen to me......her father is in the police force and so he has some sway in this matter. If he really wants you to marry his daughter and get her a visa to get out of Tunisia then he will get yo…
  • Here is my suggestion - don't do anything! If you don't appear at the court for the first hearing you will receive another 'invitation' to appear at a 2nd hearing. If you don't appear then you will receive another invitation for a 3rd hearing. If…
  • Mozak - I have to agree with Alethia. Unless you have someone intervene your visa will never be granted.
  • What do you mean by proper counselling?? You can go online to your embassy here and you will find a list of translators. No lawyer here will give you the name of a translator - you need to find them yourself and what do you mean by 'dark'?? If yo…
