Transcription of Civil Acts and Homologation of Foreign Judgement
If you already have Portuguese citizenship or wish to obtain it, it is important to know that in certain cases it will be necessary to transcribe civil acts in Portugal, that is, transcription of birth, marriage and death certificates. In fact, Portuguese legislation establishes that it is mandatory to update the marital status of Portuguese citizens whenever they carry out civil acts abroad.
In addition, in cases of divorce, common-law marriage, adoption or other foreign judgement or extrajudicial decision, it is not possible to just transcribe the civil registry, but it is necessary to carry out a process of ratification and confirmation of the foreign decision through the Court of Portugal.
