What is an Apostille?

For International couples we also offer the filing for the Apostille. Most Countries outside of the US will require an Apostille to legalize the wedding at home. One exception is the United Kingdom where the Florida Marriage Certificate is valid without an Apostille. Please check with your local authorities if an Apostille is required to legalize your wedding at home. Some marriages have to be filed with the Embassy of the respective Country. One examples is Switzerland. It is the applicants responsibility to get information about necessary steps to legalize the wedding at home.
