Hello everyone. After a long absence, I’m back on the blog. The reason for me not posting since March was because I had nothing new to report until all the documentation from Pakistan was done. So, I have obtained the following documents from Pakistan:
- my birth certificate from the National Database and Registration Authortity (NADRA);
- a Certificate of No Impediment to marriage signed by the local Secretary of the Union Council;
- a declaration from my father attesting to the fact that I am unmarried
- the Family Registration Certificate (FRC) from NADRA.
All these documents are being translated as I write this post and as soon as I have them translated, I will submit them to the local Standesamt. For translation – only in NRW – you can refer to this website: http://www.dolmetscher-uebersetzer.nrw.de/. Please note that your state might have its own website for this as well. I haven’t had the time to properly research this.
Stay tuned for a post explaining these documents in detail.
