Congratulations!

Can one apply for facilitated naturalisation after three years of marriage to a Swiss? A friend of mine was told so when she renewed her permit in town in the third year—I just did the same (same town, just about six months between my third year and hers) and had no helpful hints from the lady behind the counter, though I did have the new young intern and not one of the older ladies on staff.
You need to have lived in Switzerland for 5 years total aswell.

I needed to get an apostille on my US birth certificate (which needed to be less than 6 months old, but that part was easy.).
In the US. The apostille must be affixed by the Secretary of State (or similar postion) of the state in which the birth certificate was issued.
Addresses and links to the official competent authorities can be found here: https://www.hcch.net/en/states/autho...ails3/?aid=353

Problem: If mail in service is provided it must most often has to be paid by check or money order. If you do not have an account with an US bank this might become a big problem and you have to resort to a third party provider as Swiss bank charge you an arm, a leg, and three of your own kidneys for a simple check which might not be accepted by the other side.
