Why hello dear! xD
I just called the Royal consulate of the netherlands, which informed me that we cannot marry unless you are either a citizen of the netherlands or a permanent
I called the Spanish consulate multiple times with all 3 given phone numbers, but neither have answered. The phone call goes similar to this:
"If you don't know your party's extension, press 0 to talk to an operator.
((horrible funky music)) We're sorry, nobody is available."
So.......Perhaps you'll have better luck trying to reach them. I tried calling Monday and today.......
We will either have to marry here or in Spain. I would recommend calling the consulate to see if Spain would recognize your marriage abroad and if I could then have all legal documentation needed to obtain EU residency.
HOWEVER, if we must marry in Spain, I"m sure I can arrange for a slightly earlier departure. This is the webiste detailing all the information that I need as a U.S. Citizen.
I have not yet found what you need, but I"m sure we could find that out. Also, I am looking into what proceedings and documentation are needed to apply for residency following the marriage.
