How To Apostille a Court Document
Can a court document get an apostille? Yes, but it must first be certified. Court documents can get an apostille to be used in other countries. If you have a court document take a look at it and see if it has a seal or stamp stating that it is a certified copy.
Only court documents that are certified copies can get an apostille. If your court document does not have the certified copy seal you must get one first. You will need to go to the court that issued the document and ask to get it certified. The court deputy will then add the seal or stamp to the document and sign it.
Once your court document has the certified copy seal or stamp, the apostille process can start. The Secretary of State will verify the signature on the certified copy seal and attached the apostille to your document.
