Available. Birth (Извод од Матична книга на родени), Marriage (Извод од Матична книга на венчани) and Death Certificates, (Извод од Матична книга на умрени) are available from the civil registrar (Матичар) having jurisdiction over the locality where the event occurred. A marriage which took place by proxy is not usually evident from the marriage certificate. Prior to May 10, 1946, these records were maintained by Orthodox Church authorities. Since that date, only civil marriages have been legal. The Orthodox Church continues to issue birth and marriage certificates, but these are not purely ceremonial documents.
The government of Macedonia defines a marriage as a union between a man and a woman and therefore will not register same-sex marriages. Additionally, a same-sex marriage registered in a country that legally allows same-sex marriage is not considered to be a legal relationship in Macedonia.
The civil registrar (Матичар) having jurisdiction over a person's residence will issue a certificate stating that the applicant is or is not married (Уверение за брачна состојба).
Note: Non-residents must apply for these documents through a Macedonian diplomatic mission. They are unlikely to receive a reply if they write directly to the issuing office. Macedonian consular offices throughout the world are supplied with the appropriate forms for obtaining civil documents. The request will be forwarded to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for transmission to the office responsible for the issuance of the required document. The document will then be returned to the applicant via the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Macedonian Diplomatic Mission overseas.
The above procedure can be lengthy. All applicants are encouraged to attempt, at the same time, to obtain the required documents through a family member, friend or lawyer residing in Macedonia, who could apply personally at the office which issues the documents.
Available. Copies of divorce judgments are available from the municipal court (Основен суд) that decided the case. A divorce certificate is typewritten and headed "In the name of the citizens of the Republic of Macedonia" (Во име на граѓаните на Република Македонија). Since May 10, 1946, only divorces obtained through the civil courts have been legal. Prior to this date, divorces granted by church authorities were also recognized.
