About:Marriage Registration in China

How Do we Register in China an American Marriage Between an American citizen and a Chinese citizen?

I married my Chinese wife in the USA. We had our marriage license authenticated at the Chinese Consulate in LA. How do we register our marriage in China?

Allan, I am afraid that you can not register your marriage in China. In order to register your marriage in China, you should provide your single certificate. However, you already got married with your wife in the USA. So I am afraid that you can't acquire the single certificate anymore. However, you can get your marriage certificate authenticated by Chinese embassy. Then your marriage is accepted by Chinese law. There is just a problem. The authentification is just valid for 3 or 6 months.

By the way, if you get your marriage certificate authenticated by Chinese embassy successfully, your wife can change her marriage status (from single to married) at the police station where her Hukou is registered.
