Our Process


As an Indian NRI living abroad, I never imagined I would face custody battles and legal complexities in a foreign court. The India for NRI intervened swiftly, arranging expert legal representation and advocating for my rights as a parent. Their dedication and support were instrumental in securing a favorable outcome for my child's future.

------Ankit Patel, Ahmedabad,India

When I found myself in an abusive marriage overseas, I felt trapped and helpless. The Indian consulate not only helped me navigate the legal system but also provided a safe haven and connected me with local support services. Thanks to their intervention, I was able to break free from the cycle of abuse and rebuild my life with confidence.

A marriage certificate is more than just a piece of paper – it's a legal document that solidifies your marital status. In India, registration is mandated by the Hindu Marriage Act, of 1955 and the Special Marriage Act, of 1954. This process requires the presence of both spouses before the registrar or sub-registrar of the civil agency in the respective district or state. 

But what if you can't be there in person? That's where India for NRI steps in. Our dedicated team helps you navigate the complexities of obtaining an online marriage certificate. We understand that life can take you far from home, which is why we offer an expert consultation on document procurement.

When physical presence becomes a challenge, a letter of authority from the spouses allows India for NRI to act on your behalf for the marriage certificate application. However, the process doesn't end with obtaining the certificate. We extend our services to provide marriage certificate apostille, ensuring international acceptance and legality as per the Hague Convention.

For countries outside the Convention, we offer document attestation services, with additional charges applicable for international deliveries. At India for NRI, we're here to make sure your legal documentation meets the highest standards, no matter where life takes you.
