A marriage certificate (sometimes referred to as a marriage license), provides detailed information about a marriage between two individuals. A US-issued marriage certificate must go through the apostille process before it can be accepted for official use in a foreign country that has signed the Apostille Section of the Hague Convention. This is so foreign officials can easily determine whether the signature of the vital records official on the document is legitimate. A certified copy (a copy issued by the Vital Records Department of your state or county) of a marriage certificate is required to begin the apostille process. To acquire one, visit vitalchek.com Once you have your certified copy, Documents International, LLC can help make your marriage certificate apostille process as smooth and easy as possible.
