Do you need an apostille on your Petition for Name Change?
A Petition for Name Change issued from the local District Court (Federal Court) must be an original certified copy signed and stamped by the Deputy Clerk. The signature must be an original signature. This document should also include at lease one embossment (raised seal) We have provided an example below for review.
If you do not have an original signed copy, please contact the local District Court and speak with the Deputy Clerk for instructions.
Obtaining an apostille can be complicated. Don’t leave this process to untrained employees or non-professionals who do not fully understand the Apostille process and the unique requirements of certain countries. Your paperwork could be rejected costing you time and money. Don’t let this happen to you!
