To support the economy of families and contribute to the culture of legality, Governor Mauricio Vila Dosal announced the return of the “Formalize your union” program to the Fairgrounds. of the Yucatán Xmatkuil State Fair 2022, after two years of suspension due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

On November 24, hundreds of couples will have the opportunity to get married for free, just like the more than 400 who did it in the past edition of the fair. In this sense, the head of the Legal Department (CJ), Yussif Heredia Fritz, stressed the importance of formalizing the unions so that both parties have certainty before the law.

To participate in this program, it is necessary to go previously to any Civil Registry Office of the state, to fill up the marriage and registration applications. Likewise, the Directorate of Civil Registry will give a prenuptial talk, which the contracting parties must attend in a mandatory manner since proof of attendance is a requirement.

It is also requested that they be made up exclusively of citizens of legal age, which they will have to prove with a birth certificate and official identification with a photograph, in addition to being asked for a document proving residence in Yucatan, all in originals and copies.

In turn, the director of the Civil Registry, Juan de Dios Collí, stressed that this call will facilitate the access of more Yucatecans to the benefits of legal unions, such as government programs designed for marriages, including housing loans, medical services, financing and inheritances.
