The notary or your family should send this to the Free China office in London or whatever its called, along with a bit of cash and a self-addressed envelope (your own address). They will check that the notary is a real notary and then they'll put their own seal on it and post it to you. Easy-peasy lemon squeezy.
Phew ok making slightly more sense now , once we are finally married , will my now wife, be able to pass and work freely in the UK ? i suppose the question is , is the marriage recognized in the uk and what if anything would my now wife need to do in Taiwan prior to us going to the uk?
Thanks again , your advice really is appreciated
EDIT so the sworn statement doesn't need to be legalised by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office as its from a solicitor and the free china building is getting it certified by a Taiwanese Representative Office correct ?
