Do you need to apostille a death certificate?
We can apostille death certificates issued from all 50 US States and the District of Columbia (Washington, D.C.)
In order to apostille a death certificate, the certificate must either be issued from the Health Department, County Clerk, or the State Registrar. The certificate must bear the official signature of the official who is authorized to sign it. In order to obtain the Hague Apostille for this certificate, it must be mailed in to our office for processing.
For example, if the death certificate was issued from the State of Florida, the Florida death certificate must be apostilled from the State of Florida. The same holds true for a Texas death certificate. A death certificate issued from the State of Texas can only be apostilled from the Texas State office.

WARNING: If an apostille company offers to apostille a death certificate in a state other than the one it was issued from, then the apostille is considered invalid (Basically fraud). For example, if a California death certificate was issued with a New York apostille, this apostille is invalid and fraudulent. A notary cannot copy certify a vital record certificate (Birth, Death, Marriage) and process it through another State. Example: The State of New York cannot apostille a signature of a California official who signed the California death certificate. We recommend that you work with a reputable apostille service company who will obtain the apostille from the State the certificate was issued from.
