|| An Apostille is a document from an international treaty drafted by the Hague Conference on Private International Law. It specifies the modalities through which a document issued in one of the signatory countries can be certified for legal purposes in all the other signatory states. Such a certification is called an apostille (French: certification). It is an international certification comparable to a notarisation in domestic law.

| Lawyer notarization
|| Notarization is the official fraud-deterrent process performed by Notaries Public or lawyer that renders the important documents of everyday life as trustworthy. It is a three-part process of vetting, certifying and record-keeping. Notarizations are also called notarial acts. Above all, notarization is the assurance by a duly appointed and impartial Notary Public that a document is authentic, that its signature is genuine, and that its signer acted without duress or intimidation, and intended the terms of the document to be in full force and effect. The central value of notarization lies in the Notary’s impartial screening of a signer for identity, willingness and awareness. This screening detects and deters document fraud, and helps protect the personal rights and property of private citizens from forgers, identity thieves and exploiters of the vulnerable. Across the nation every day, the process of notarization prevents countless forged, coerced and incompetent signings that would otherwise overwhelm our court system and dissolve the network of trust allowing our civil society to function.
| Embassy Legalization
|| Documents issued in one country and intended for use in another country must be “legalized” in order to be recognized as valid in the foreign country. If the country where the document will be used is not a party to the Convention (See non-HLC-Countries), you will need “Embassy (Consular) Legalization” ( “Chain Authentication”). “Embassy (Consular) Legalization” of official documents is a procedure of confirmation of the validity of originals of official documents or certification of authenticity of signatures of the officials, authorized to certify the signatures on documents, and also the validity of prints of stamps, seals by which the document is fastened. The documents for non Hague Countries are subjected to “chain authentication” in the State, Federal and Embassy levels.
