Notarize Marriage Documents in Ontario

Foreign marriage officials require you to prove you are not already married in your own country. A Canadian government “statement in lieu of a certificate of non-impediment to marriage abroad” is evidence that you are single, divorced, or widowed. It allows you to go through with a foreign marriage.

You may be able to get a statement from a Canadian embassy or consulate in a foreign country. But why wait and be disappointed? Axess Law has a virtual notary public near you who can witness and sign a single status statutory declaration, verifying your identity and marital status before you depart.

Documents We Need

To notarize marriage documents, bring the following to your online video call or in person appointment with an Axess Law notary public Toronto lawyer:

Ontario driver’s licence, Canadian passport, Ontario photo card, Canadian citizenship card with photo, or Canadian permanent resident card with photo.

Birth certificate, social insurance card, or major credit card with your name on it.

Prove Your Marriage is Legal

Axess Law’s in person or online commissioner of oaths services witness the statutory declaration of legal marriage forms. Can’t find your documents? Getting an authenticated marriage certificate before you apply for social benefits may be out of the question. Making a statutory declaration of legal marriage moves your application for Old Age Security or the Canada Pension Plan forward without the hassle of waiting for marriage documents to arrive.

Settle Estates Sooner

You may even be asked to prove your marriage is legal if you are beneficiary or heir to an Ontario estate. When your marriage certificate is not easy to locate, Axess Law can witness your statutory declaration, making it possible to settle an estate earlier. Bring a government-issued photo ID like a driver’s license to your commissioner of oaths appointment. We review your form and witness your signature before you apply, making it quicker and easier for you to access government services.

Some FAQs

Prove Your Marriage is Over: Ontario marriage license offices require proof you are no longer married before issuing the papers you need to go through with a legal marriage. Even if you choose banns, a religious ceremony without a marriage license, you may be asked to prove your marriage is valid.

Statutory Declarations Signed Online or In Person: Axess Law’s virtual notarization Ontario services witness and e-sign statement of sole responsibility forms declaring foreign divorces or annulments. Signing verifies you and your new partner understand getting a marriage license is no guarantee your foreign divorce or annulment will be recognized by Ontario courts.

We Write Foreign Divorce Opinion Letters: Your marriage license application requires a foreign divorce opinion letter only an Ontario lawyer can provide. Axess Law lawyers can prepare foreign divorce letters to accompany your application. Bring an original or court-certified copy of your divorce decree or annulment and, if it is in a language other than French or English, a certified translation. We will discuss your marital situation with you and draft the necessary documents to give to Service Ontario to prove your foreign marriage is over.
