Helpful Info – Apostille Texas documents
When a document is to go to a foreign country, it is often necessary to have the notarization or official certification authenticated. Many countries call this an apostille.
Authenticating a Vital Record
When you need a vital record (birth/death certificate, marriage or dissolution of marriage certificate, etc.) authenticated, you should first get a recently issued certified copy of the record/s from county officials and local registrars. A certified copy of a county record is not appropriate.
Documents that need to be translated would need a notary on the translated document which must be signed by the translator in the presence of the notary. The original document would then be submitted along with the notarized translation for authentication.
Authenticating a Transcript or Diploma
To apostille Texas transcripts and diplomas the document/s must be notarized before being presented for authentication. This can be done in one of two ways:
- ORIGINAL school records may be notarized if the school official signs an affidavit in the presence of the notary public.
- A PHOTOCOPY of the original school record may be notarized if the owner of the original document signs an affidavit on the photocopy, in the presence of the notary public.
In either case, the notary must complete the appropriate notarial certificate acknowledging the date the signer appeared before him/her.
