Papers, papers, papers

(La Paz, Bolivia)

I'm getting married in Bolivia to a beautiful Bolivian woman. We hope! Trying to do things the leagle way. The frustration level has reached an all time high, and we are hoping we can still manage to get married by the end of the month. We have been through a nightmare of papers, papers, papers, leagalization, authintification, certification, noterization, money, money, money, certified, leagalized, there anyone else going through all this? I thought we had only one more paper, but each step reveals five more steps, and ten more signatures...and I am not one of the rich americans who can afford to fly back and forth to DC to meet with this person at the state dept, and this person at the Bolivian counsular....

Ok, sorry, just needed to vent. Any advice? Any way to streamline this process.

Thanks for the good website

My sympathy for you and your fiance. My email is if I can help you please contact me
