Here are some common questions…
Why do you need an apostille on your marriage certificate? If you are planning to obtain dual citizenship, register your marriage in another country (Example: UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, etc..), sell or buy property in another country, open or close bank accounts, pension etc…. you will be asked to obtain an apostille on your marriage certificate.
Will I receive my marriage certificate back? Yes. If your document qualifies for an apostille, the State will staple or rivet the apostille to your original document. The apostille certifies the signature and name of the acting public official who signed your document.
How long does the process take? The processing time depends on the State that has issued your documents. For example, we can apostille a Marriage certificate through our Los Angeles, New York, and Washington DC office the same-day. For the State of Michigan, the processing time is 12-15 business days. The processing time for most States is 5-7 business days. We recommend that you contact us for a good faith estimate in processing your documents.
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.
