By DAVID LEWIS TIJUANA, Mexico (UPI) No delay, no blood test, no witnesses. Just pay the $35 and it's "instant marriage." That is what the Tijuana "lawyers" have been telling unsuspecting Americans for years. Is the marriage valid? A prominent San Diego attorney, an expert on Mexican law, says probably not. "If over the years you have been married, you have done things like filing income tax returns, signing contracts and owning property—all as husband and wife," Paul Rosado said, "but the legality of all these actions can be cast in doubt by the invalidity of the marriage." It all works like this. Americans anxious to marry in a hurry stream into the marriage offices where they are told they can be wed on the spot by proxy. Take the honeymoon and the paperwork wilt be there when you get home. Simple enough, but according to Rosado, there is only one official "marrying agency" in Mexico—the Civil Registry. And despite what the backroom lawyers say, marriage in Mexico, when it is done legally, is not much different than in the United States—a medical exam by a Mexican physician, two witnesses to certify there are no impediments to mar­ riage, no coercion, at least 18 years of age. Those are the requirements. How do the phony lawyers and marriage brokers get away with it? Simple enough. Anyone can buy official forms for 16 cents. After that a phony signature from the mayor and a judge and a phony seal, and there it is—a phony certificate that looks exactly like the real thing. The only difference,^ Rosado said, Is that nowhere is it recorded. No record, no marriage. What can the outraged American couple do? Very little, according to Hosado. "If you go in and say I've heard you are phony, they say, 'sue me,'" Rosado said. Aside from the outrage, the legal problems still exist, and they can be very real when proof of marriage is important. California law protects Americans who find their marriages are not valid. Rosado said if the marriage Is entered into In good faith, the couplp receive all the benefits of.a legally married couple. Federal law, however, Is different. Unless you are legally married, you are not a wife or widow in the eyes of tha law—a problem that can be perplexing and complex. And not only is your marriage invalid In the United States, but the Mexicans don't recognize it either.
