• If we live in a State which doesn’t have a statute which provides for proxy marriages, will a Marriage Certificate, which results from a proxy marriage in Montana, Texas, Colorado, or Brazil, be recognized in my State?
Yes; all of the proxy marriages, which are facilitated by Dream Makers’ Services, Ltd., are legally recognized by all U.S. States (including Iowa*) and all U.S. territories. These proxy marriages are also immediately recognized by all branches of the United States Federal Government, with one minor caveat: U.S. Immigration recognizes all proxy marriages only after they have been consummated. Nations, throughout the world, recognize these proxy marriages in the same way that they recognize non-proxy marriages which are solemnized in the United States.
• If my fiancé is serving overseas in the United States Military, can we become legally married while he’s serving overseas?
Yes; this is precisely the purpose of the proxy marriages which are facilitated by Dream Makers’ Services.
• I’m a U.S. citizen and my fiancée is a foreign citizen. How does U.S. Immigration treat a proxy marriage?
U.S. Immigration will recognize your proxy marriage after it has been consummated. Moreover, even before your proxy marriage is consummated, U.S. Immigration generally gives preferential treatment to your fiancées immigration status.
• If we become married by proxy, can we still have a wedding, wherein both the bride and groom are present, together in the same physical location, along with family and friend at a later time?
Of course! And many of our clients choose to do this. After becoming legally married by proxy, you can certainly have a more-traditional wedding in a physical location, and it’s our experience that doing this has never diminished the excitement and joy shared by all attendees of the subsequent wedding celebration. Along these lines, you might also consider a Live Proxy Marriage.
