Marriage in Lugano


I'm new. Hope someone can help!
I am English and my partner is French. He lives in Lugano and I live in Manchester. We have been preparing our marriage application to marry (hopefully) in September. I submitted my documentation in mid-July to the Swiss Embassy in London, it was then forwarded first to Bern, then Breganzona.

My boyfriend went, last week, to submit his documentation. I have been married before, I had submitted a copy of my Decree Absolute as requested. They then informed him that I needed to prove residency of my ex-husband at the time of the divorce. The only place this is quoted on my divorce papers is on the petition, so I have sent all this over.

My question is, has anyone else been asked to prove this? What did you provide?

Many thanks for reading this far,

Re: Marriage in Lugano


Yes Breganzona are the people to deal with, but as my fiancee and I are both Swiss (on paper), it was pretty easy.

If you want, you can PM me, several friends of mine are English/Italian speaking lawyers, so I can always ask (one coming by this week to discuss some ongoing motorcycle repairs that we are doing for each other).
