Marriage in Denmark

Postby bride2010 » Tue Dec 14, 2010 8:16 am

Hey all,
I need to share this positive experience with you, my fiancé and I have been trying to get married for several years, but rules kept getting in the way for our marriage...

I am from Belgium and my fiancé is US - we almost gave up, but then a friend of mine told me that I should try ONE MORE TIME in Denmark.

At first I was skeptic, but decided to give it a try...and you know what - WE GOT MARRIED! and the whole process was les than 2 weeks from the first contact with our fantastic wedding planner [MOD: NO ADVERTISING ALLOWED !!!]

I can only imagine how many couples are in the same situation as we where, but don't loose hope - it can be happening.

Wish you all the best of luck - it is now time for OUR HONEYMOON <3<3<3

lots of love

Mrs. Carlton

A good place to start for information on Denmark is the Guide to Copenhagen. It offers info on visas etc. However, it doesn't totally cover marriage requirements.

According to the Danish Marriage Act, you must:
Be lawfully present in Denmark
Documentation showing present marital status, i.e. copy of your last tax return
Valid passport showing proof of entry into Denmark or into the Schengen area
If you have been previously married, you must present your original divorce decree.

You should contact the Citizens Service Center (Borgerservice) http://www.kk.dk - http://www.kk.dk/ If you are planning to get married in Copenhagen, but you are not yet in Denmark, you may contact the Copenhagen City Hall

Let us know how it goes & if you have more questions. Congrats & good luck!

Yes Josie19...please share so I can also get some help.

Hi texkourgan n other members,

Im 36 years old from Afghanistan and an MBA by education. My Danish BF and I are planning our marriage in Denmark but we both are clueless. I applied for the Denmark tourist visa but it got rejected but I'll try again and I've some questions to discuss different options we both can have to get materialize our marriage. I've looked in Denmark Immigration website but still have some confusions. So Ive few questions and hopefully you can answer them.

1. What is the way to get married through attorney?...if I do not get the tourist visit visa to Denmark?...and as Afghanistan is not that safe to visit..so we'll not prefer to get married in Afghanistan..so what can be the best possibility to get married by living in our home countries?

2. If by any chance I get the tourist visa(which is difficult to get from here)and I go there and marry him...so I'll have to come back again to Afghanistan and wait for my PR or you can just keep living there until I get my PR?...(my concern is that lets say Ive been granted only 15 days in Denmark n in within those days I get married to him...n he may file of my PR but what if I dnt get my PR in within those 15 days?

2. Once we get married so Denmark government will be bound to give me PR?...are there any other requirements as well from my side or his side to fulfill other than the marriage certificate?

Please help me with my queries. I'll really appreciate the detailed answers with processing times required documents for each option.

Regards,

Laiba

Hi,
I need a little help here. I am here in Denmark, I come here yearly for three times to visit my fiance. We are planning to get married here but I am not annuled back home. In USA, if the woman is not annulled in the Philippines, they can always seek a lawyer’s help and file a divorce even if the ex husband will not sign or its called non-appearance divorce. can i possibly do it in Denmark? my bf is citizen of Denmark. I filed me annulment back home already tho but it takes time and we both wanna be together here already pls help an advice will be appreciated.
