Do you need to apostille a divorce decree?
At USA Apostille, Inc., we take the guesswork out of obtaining an apostille on your certified divorce decree.
We can apostille divorce decrees issued from all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia. For countries who are non-members of the Hague Apostille Convention, we can also process your certified divorce decree through the U.S. Department of State and the Embassy or Consulate office.
In order to apostille your divorce decree, you must mail in a certified copy issued from the Court. The certified copy must include a signature from the Clerk of the Court and a color seal (Example: red, blue, purple, etc..) or a raised seal. Certified divorce decrees can only be authenticated from the State of origin. The Secretary of State does not have the authority to authenticate divorce decrees issued from another state. For example, a California divorce decree cannot be processed in New York.
Not every divorce decree qualifies for an apostille. We recommend that you mail in the certified copy you currently have for review before ordering a new one from the Court. If the State rejects your document, we will contact you with instructions.
Please Note: We can only help you with documents originating from or notarized within the United States and for another country. If your divorce decree is originating from another country, you will need to contact the correct competent authority to assist you in that country.
Obtaining an apostille can be complicated. Don’t leave this process to untrained employees or non-professionals who do not fully understand the apostille process and the unique requirements of certain countries. Your paperwork could be rejected costing you time and money. Don’t let this happen to you!
