International Relations Understanding Apostilles & Legalizations

1.0 CLE

International Relations: Understanding Apostilles & Legalizations

Apostilles & Legalizations, in the simplest of terms, is an international notarization. It is to authenticate the seals and signatures of officials on public documents (such as birth/death certificates, court orders, marriage licenses, divorce decrees, corporate Certificates of Good Standing, or any other document issued by a public authority), determine if those documents may be apostilled or not, and to have those documents be recognized in foreign countries. This presentation will cover the Hague Apostille Convention and briefly the determination of the origin country (including U.S.) of the document if it is public or not, such as those originating from a court, process server, Secretary of State, US Patent & Trademark Office, etc.
