where do i go to get my hk marriage certificate notarized? my wife (prc chinese) and i got married in h k but it seems that neither the prc or the US will recognize an hk marriage certificate unless it is notarized by a licensed hk notary public. we are coming to h k soon. so where do i get it notarized?

can i get it notarised here? i don't think the US immigration will care. the prc visa office here told me i couldn't use it for my visa unless i got it notarised in hk. but will they even notice if i do it here? someone also told me i couldn't notarise the original. is that true? will notarising a copy pose difficulties?
check out the law society of hong kong website - they have a list of notaries and the fees are standardised. yes the consulate will care and the prc can notice and then....
whats the link for law society of hk?
where can I get a notary public who charges $400? The ones I asked (about witnessing an affidavit) asks for $1500. Thanks.

If you are American and want something notarized, the US Consulate offers notary services for US$30 (cheaper than HK $400!!). You just need to make an appt on the HK location of the US Consulate online.
not sure if the previous post included the link.
