NSO Marriage License Waiting Time

As promised, here is my update:

It is only today that I got the chance to go to our NSO to check if my marriage license is already online or not. And indeed, it is already available! Yippeeee! Today is the 31st day since we went to file/register our marriage license. I truly feel relived!

The fee I paid are:
NSO Marriage Certificate -- 140php/each
NSO CEMAR -- 195php/each

The NSO Marriage Certificate is a scanned copy of your Marriage Certificate which you have submitted for registration. This is printed on a security paper (SECPA) colored yellow. On the other hand, CEMAR (also a Certificate of Marriage) is a certification letter by the NSO stating that your records are found in their system. This is also printed in SECPA colored yellow. To get the CEMAR, I filled up a form for a CENOMAR (Certificate of No Marriage) and submitted this. Once they see in their system that you are married, they automatically print you a CEMAR.

This is all for now. Good luck with yours and hope its not a long wait too!
