We will get married in China and we will leave at 29th April. I'm afraid if I go to the local council to get the certificate of no impediment, it will take a long time.
How long would it take and how much would it cost to get a certificate of no impediment?
Any solicitor can let you have this for about £100 if you have something which tells them what it needs to say.
The last client I did one of these for came along with adocument he got from somewhere which said what it needed to confirm.
I did it in the form of a statutory declaration whichcost him about £150 because I did it within 24 hours. He then had to go toanother firm of solicitors to swear on oath and that cost 5 pounds. Make surethat you get the swearing solicitors official stamp on it.
The hardest part is going to be finding a solicitor whowill deal with it immediately. There is no reason why there should be a delay.Apart from existing workload.
Can I help further?

I have a relevant to my previous question. My girlfriend is under the Tier One (Post-Study-Work) visa which will expire next year February. In consideration of her visa changing, is it better if we get married in UK rather than China?
I'm sorry but I don't know anythingabout visas or work permits so I will open the question for other experts toconsider.
On a practical note, if you are goingto live in the UK it might be an idea to have all the paperwork in English
