Power of Attorney Apostille

You will need an apostille on a Power of Attorney if you need to do business or handle personal family concerns in a nation that is a member of the Hague Apostille Convention. In most circumstances, the document will be created in the other country by an attorney or specialist and mailed/emailed to you. Most Secretary of State offices will accept papers written in a foreign language if they have been properly notarized.

Following the drafting of the paperwork, a meeting with a local notary (I'm licensed in New Jersey) is required. Because the documents will be verified by the Secretary of State, the notary must follow the proper notarial requirements in their state. The proper notarial wording must be printed on the document or appended to the signed page in English.

A translation service may be required to complete, in which case, I can help.
