In order to apostille your divorce decree, you will need to mail in a certified copy. A certified copy will typically have an emobossed seal from the Court and a real signature of the Deputy Clerk (Court Official). If you are unsure of if your document is a certified copy, we recommend that you mail in your document to our office for verification and processing.
How to Get Your Divorce Decree:
A final decree of divorce is archived in the vital records office of your courthouse, in the county in which you obtain your divorce. In most situations, the court clerk or your attorney will mail you a copy of your final decree.If this doesn’t happen or you need an extra copy you should write to or go to the court clerk’s office and request a copy.
If you had hired an attorney to help you with your divorce, your attorney should have supplied you with a Certified Copy of your Divorce Decree. If not, your attorney can obtain one from the court and overnight it to your location or recommend a service company which can obtain a certified copy from the court directly.
The reason why another country who is a member of the Hague Apostille Convention would request your Divorce Decree to be apostilled is because they want to make sure you are unmarried. You may be asked to provide additional document. For example: Birth Certificate Apostille, Background Check Apostille from the FBI Apostille, etc…
If the country requesting your Divorce Decree is not a member of the Hague Apostille Convention, then your documents may require further authentication through the U.S. Department of State in Washington, D.C. and legalization through the Embassy or Consulate office. Our Staff in D.C. can handle your Department of State and Embassy legalization requests quickly.
Apostilles 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!
