In US law you cannot just get a copy of someone else marriage certificate unless the complaint has been process or there's an order from the authority.
In this case my friend's mother had a copy of my friend's marriage certificate from US Embassy and she wasn't given an authorization from both parties.
In the US law as it is different from the law in Philippines if she request without any full authorization she can be prosecuted of falsification and the US Embassy will be the one to be dealing with her mother.
As in order to request a marriage certificate you will have to have the copy or registration number and a letter from the concern parties and at least one of the party's signatures. It cannot be issued to anyone without a proper procedures.
I believe my friend's mother just broke the law of documents privacy as this mother seems to be very influential as she claimed. Is it true that this influential people can just bypass the law in your country?
