Marriage Certificate Apostille
The following are some of the most common reasons for another nation requesting an Apostille on a marriage certificate:
Death of Spouse
Interest & Ownership in Property
Moving to Another Country
Working in Another Country
If your marriage certificate is missing, damaged, or older than the state's requirements, we recommend ordering a new certified copy from VitalChek.com.
You will be required to supply a Marriage Certificate with an Apostille if the requesting nation is a signatory to the Hague Apostille Convention. The Apostille is used to verify a document so that it can be accepted in another nation.
If the nation seeking the Marriage Certificate is not a signatory to the Hague Apostille Convention, the papers may require further verification and legalization via the U.S. Department of State in Washington, D.C. American Apostille can rapidly address your Department of State and legalization requests.
