I hope everyone is doing well adjusting to Brazil and keeping up with everything that is happening to the country
I am looking trying to understand the steps I need to take to get Permanent Residency in Brazil.
I have lived in Brazil on an off for over 3 years.
I got married to my Brazilian Husband in the United States (NJ) in 2015. I have a marriage certificate. We are applying for his residency in the US, but would like to know the simplest (if there is) way to apply for mine (Brazilian) here in Brazil.
From what I understand I believe I would need a Brazilian marriage certificate first, how can i go about getting this?
-Do I get married again in (where i live)Rio de Janeiro, Brazil?
-Translate/ Register my US marriage certificate? If so where?
How do I go about these steps and is it possible to do this in the Brazilian Consulate in NYC instead?
Overall, I would like to know if I can do this in the Brazilian Consulate alone in the US (while i go visit family) or does my husband need to be with me in the US?
I have heard people say to do everything in the US and in US consulates that it is less hassel and easier....so I was leaning towards this, but I do not know if I can.
And I am in Brazil now, so shouldn't I just get it over with here.
Any suggestions or advice would help SOOOO much!!
I am very confused at this point.
Thank you all have a blessed day!
