Apostilled marriage certificates are usually requested if people apply for dual citizenship, purchase of property, claim an inheritance, or relocate to another country for work or study. Marriage certificate apostille may also be requested in the event of the death of a spouse.

A marriage certificate apostille can only be processed through the state of its issue.  So, if you were married in Nevada, then your marriage certificate can only receive the Nevada apostille.  Or, if you were married in California, your marriage certificate can only receive an apostille from California.  A marriage certificate apostille is always processed in the state of issue.

An apostille on marriage certificate can only be issued for use in the countries-members of the Hague Apostille Convention. If your marriage certificate is requested by a non-member country of the Hague Apostille Treaty, you will need to request a marriage certificate legalization - a special authentication through the U.S. Department of State in Washington, D.C., and legalization through the Embassy / Consulate office.

Global Apostille will apostille marriage certificates issued in all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia. 

Before mailing your marriage certificate for apostille service please check with us for the specific requirements for your marriage certificate’s state of issue.   Some States have set time limits on the validity of a marriage certificate since the date of issue.  Marriage certificates issued from the State of Virginia, for example, cannot be older than 12 months. We can review your marriage certificate, check specific legalization requirements in your state, and provide you with instructions for an apostille application.

If your marriage certificate has been lost, damaged, or older than what the authorities will accept you can request a new copy on and have it shipped directly to our office for apostille. Please note this option is not available in all states.
