Do you need to apostille a marriage license?
At National Apostille, Inc., we take the guesswork out of obtaining an apostille on your marriage license. We can apostille marriage licenses issued from all 50 States and the District of Columbia (Washington DC).
In order to apostille your certificate, you must mail in the original or a certified copy issued by the County Clerk or State Registrar to our office for processing. Marriage certificates can only be authenticated from the State of issue. The Secretary of State does not have the authority to authenticate documents issued from another State. For example, if your marriage certificate is from the State of California, the State of California is the only State that can issue the California apostille. Another example is if your marriage certificate is from New York, only the State of New York can issue the apostille.
Not every marriage certificate can qualify for an apostille. Some States have set time limits on how old a certificate can be. For example, marriage certificates issued from the State of Virginia must be issued within the past 12 months. We recommend that you mail in the certificate you currently have for review. If the State rejects your document, we will contact you with instructions.
If you are outside of the US, please mail in your marriage certificate with our order forms for processing. Please call or email our office so we can email you the instructions, cost, and processing time.
