What is an Apostille?
Apostille is a French word for certification. It is a certificate issued for the document, so it becomes valid abroad. On October 5, 1961, a number of countries created an easy method to legalize documents for international use. Those countries are referred to as the members of the Hague Apostille Convention. According to the Convention, it is required that any document issued on the territory of one country shall be authenticated in order to be recognized and accepted in another country member of the Hague Convention.
How to Obtain a Marriage Certificate Apostille?
It is important to note that the Apostille cannot be obtained for the original marriage certificate. Thus, first of all, you will need to get a certified copy of the marriage certificate. Such a copy has a number of special security features to prove that the document is authentic. A marriage certificate certified copy can have the following security features – heat-sensitive ink, a watermark, micro-printing, a raised seal, multi-colored background, etc.
If the marriage was registered in any of the five boroughs of New York City, you can obtain a marriage certificate certified copy from the Office of Vital Records online or by mail.
If the marriage was registered in New York State, you can obtain a marriage certificate certified copy from the New York Department of State online or by mail.
In case the marriage was registered in the United States, outside of New York, you will need to contact the Office of Vital Records of that particular state for further instructions on how to obtain a marriage certificate certified copy.
When you receive a marriage certificate certified copy, the next step will be to put an Apostille on it. Please contact our company for the best, accurate, and affordable marriage certificate Apostille services.
It must be pointed out that the Apostille can be issued only for those countries that are members of the Hague Apostille Convention.
