APOSTILLE SERVICES (FL)

I can assist you with your documents that require an Apostille from the State of Florida. 

This is very often required for documents with legal significance (such as a marriage license, or death certificate) issued by a government body or agency within the jurisdiction of the United States, for which you are seeking reciprocal legal recognition in a foreign (non-U.S.) jurisdiction.

"Apostille" is a French word which means a certification. It is commonly used in English to refer to the legalization of a document for international use under the terms of the 1961 Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalization for Foreign Public Documents.  Documents which have been notarized by a notary public, and certain other documents, and then certified with a conformant apostille are accepted for legal use in all the nations that have signed the Hague Convention.

The Florida Secretary of State will Certify or Apostille the following documents:

  • Documents notarized or certified as true copies by a Florida Notary

  • Public Birth and Death Certificates bearing the signature of the State Registrar obtained from the Bureau of Vital Statistics in Jacksonville

  • Florida Vehicle Titles certified by the Florida Department of Motor Vehicles Corporation

  • documents bearing the signature of the Secretary of State

  • Documents certified by a Clerk of the Court from a county within Florida


**NOTE: Documents must be submitted with original signatures;
copies cannot be certified.
