Customer: No ceremony just signed papers but at the British embassy the lady said pick a date. We say 13 October. She says not a day after that date or it won't count in UK. Paper says 1St of November. So I was always thinking its not legal here. Can u help me

Good afternoon, could you confirm whether you signed papers are marriage registry?

Expert:  AkuaK replied 13 days ago.

As a general answer if you are legally married in U.K. you would have received a marriage certificate which is legally binding that you and ex partner would have signed.
