How to Apostille a Divorce Decree

We provide fast Apostille service for Divorce Decree documents issued from all 50 U.S. States including documents issued from the Secretary of the District of Columbia. You’ll need to mail to our office the original or certified copy of your Divorce Decree.  You’ll know it’s a certified Divorce Decree because the document general contains a color stamp and/or raised seal and a signature and title of the deputy clerk or official from the court.

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 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, 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 / Consulate office. Our Staff in D.C. can handle your Department of State and 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!
