Marriage Registration & Obtaining a Certificat de Famille

Hi all,

Silly procedural question that I've not managed to find anywhere on the Swiss Embassy site or here (perhaps looking in the wrong places??).

My wife (Swiss) and I (American) recently registered our US marriage with the Swiss embassy in the US, where we currently reside. We've not received any notification that this process is complete, but when my wife checked her Infostar record online, it indicated our new "married" status.

Question: Given the status has been updated in Infostar, should we expect to "automatically" obtain an updated Certificat de Famille in the mail now? If so, generally how long does that take?

If not, it seems we'll need to request this from the Swiss embassy here in the US and perhaps be prepared to wait 30 days? (https://www.eda.admin.ch/countries/u...documents.html)

Hoping anyone who has had some experience on this can share!

I think you have to request it, because you have to pay for it. Ok I'm not 100% sure, but if you're a resident here you pay for it, so it seems logical you'd have to pay for it there too.

That seems logical, I guess.

I've written to the embassy here to see what the say... will update with whatever I find

So to close this out, the response from the Embassy was:

"The required family certificate is available from the civil status office at your place of origin in Switzerland. It is not a document that is automatically provided."
