Apostilles authenticate the seals and signatures of officials on public documents such as birth certificates, notarials, court orders, or any other document issued by a public authority, so that they can be recognized in foreign countries that are parties to the Hague Convention. If you are in need of an Apostille please email us for additional information and fees.
Legalization is the process of authenticating or certifying a legal document so a foreign country's legal system will recognize it as with full legal effect.
Many documents that originate in the United States and are be used in another country must first be "authenticated" or "legalized". This is a process in which various seals are placed on the document by a local Embassy or Consulate so they will be recognized as legal documents in the other countries. Different countries require different levels of authentication and have different procedures. Please contact us via email if you require assistance with authenticating or legalizing documents.
