What does a certificate of marriage mean?


A marriage certificate is an official document that documents the union of two people and is issued by a government body. Marriage certificates are frequently used as documentation for government and job perks, insurance payouts, and other entitlements.

The original marriage certificate or a certified duplicate is referred to as the "marriage certificate."

A marriage license and a marriage certificate are two different papers, although people occasionally mix them together. Before being married, you must obtain a marriage license from the county recorder. A marriage certificate is a legal document that certifies your marital status and is given to you following the ceremony. Marriage licenses cannot be certified as apostilles; only marriage certificates can.

What is an apostille marriage certificate?


A marriage certificate apostille, also known as a Secretary of State apostille or Hague Convention apostille, certifies a marriage certificate so that it is accepted as legal documentation abroad. When submitting applications for immigration, visas, dual citizenship, estates, and other legal problems, attested marriage certificates are frequently needed.

The marriage certificate must be submitted in original or certified copy form in order to undergo the Secretary of State (SOS) apostille procedure. First, a member of the SOS team confirms the signature of the County official who signed the certificate and examines it for eligibility. The SOS employee will then attach a numbered paper apostille certificate to the marriage certificate if everything is in order. Lastly, a red circular stamp that is partially on the apostille and partially on the marriage certificate is used to bind the apostille to the certificate. This procedure can be finished quickly—in one or two business days—with our help.

Additional authentication from embassies or consulates, as well as frequently from the US State Department, is necessary for nations who are not signatories to the Hague Apostille Convention, like Thailand, the United Arab Emirates, or Vietnam.
