Original title: “Electronic marriage certificate” can replace paper certificate? Ministry of Civil Affairs: not legally effective
New Beijing News (Reporter Ma Jinqian) recently published an article from the media that “electronic marriage certificate” can be used for housing loan processing, property transfer, etc., paper marriage certificate will be replaced. Reporters learned today (August 19) that the head of the Social Affairs Department of the Ministry of Civil Affairs, in an interview with the media, said that the current “electronic marriage certificate” does not have the corresponding legal effect, can not replace the previous entity marriage certificate.
Marriage and divorce should also be handled on the spot by the marriage registration authority.
At present, Fujian, Jiangxi, Zhejiang, Jiangsu, Chongqing and other places have opened the “electronic marriage certificate” function. However, the head of the Social Affairs Department of the Ministry of Civil Affairs said that the current “electronic marriage certificate” is only a record of marriage registration information displayed in the form of electronic cards, not an electronic marriage registration certificate in the true sense, and does not have the corresponding legal effect, nor can it replace the substantive certificate.
The person in charge said that some media had publicize the so-called “marriage without going to the Civil Affairs Bureau”, which can be misread in Alipay’s “electronic marriage certificate”. The actual situation is, after the certification, on Alipay and other App, through personal authorization, I query my marriage registration electronic records.
According to the relevant provisions of our country, electronic certificates are not provided to individuals for the time being, but only for conditional use within government organs. Therefore, “electronic marriage certificate” is an electronic record with commemorative significance. It is only for personal inquiry, not for the use of marriage registration certificate, nor can it fully represent the marital status of the parties, and has no legal effect. It does not belong to the electronic marriage certificate issued by the state organs.
Therefore, at present, whether it is marriage registration or divorce registration, the parties need to bring relevant materials to the marriage registration authority for on-site processing in accordance with the provisions of the Marriage Registration Ordinance.
The Ministry of Civil Affairs is promoting the implementation of electronic marriage certificates
“Electronic marriage certificate” is available to everyone. How to protect personal privacy? The person in charge said that the current “electronic marriage certificate” is not open to all the public, only support me to search and download their own electronic records of marriage registration. Every time we check or get an electronic marriage certificate, we need face recognition and identity authentication. At the same time, we desensitize the spouse information. After each exit, the system does not record the relevant information.
At the same time, he also revealed that the Ministry of Civil Affairs is promoting the realization of electronic marriage certificates. On July 18, this year, the standards of “National Government Service Platform Electronic Certificate Marriage Certificate” and “National Government Service Platform Electronic Certificate Divorce Certificate” drafted by the Ministry of Civil Affairs have been officially issued by the State Council E-Government Office. Next step, we will promote the application of electronic marriage registration certificate in the national government service platform according to the requirements of the management and use of the national electronic certificate, and provide convenience for the masses.
