thank you very much for your responses -- it is especially helpful hearing that 6month validity is acceptable for my foreign documents... especially because the process of getting these documents itself takes a good ~2months. I have calmed so much with that knowledge.
For me, I am Canadian, and so we do not have this convenio signed to apostalize documents in order to prove their genuineness abroad. Instead the document is first "authenticated", then, as per RREE requirements (I think its RREE that requires it?) these documents go one more time to be "legalized" through the Peruvian consulate in Canada (I will be using the Vancouver office, and hopefully mailing my documents to do so.
(I am using this information: http://www.consuladoperu.ca/vancouver/n ... firmas.asp
I will be getting my document "authenticated" by the alberta justice (https://justice.alberta.ca/programs_ser ... ation.aspx
), or through the Ottawa office http://www.international.gc.ca/departme ... x?lang=eng
Through this ottawa office i can also get my "solteria" - but like the US, it doesn't exist in Canada, so I will get the Canadian version again: "A statement in lieu of a certificate showing non-impediment to marriage abroad" - http://www.international.gc.ca/departme ... statements
I would say though Nei21 that it is best to check with the municipality you want to marry in to see what they accept. We're in Madre de Dios, and who knows what reigns there in the jungle madness
I hope you make it!
Hope this post helps some out there... it has helped me!
and we are closer!
