If you’re about to go through the immigration process to live abroad or another process involving a foreign country’s government, you might be asked for apostilled documents. This means a document is verified as legitimate outside of the United States, so it’s recognized by that other country’s government.
In Pennsylvania, it has to have the seal and signature of the custodian of the record to be valid, who will be an official of the state. Usually the original document on its own is enough, but some may need to notarized (like a criminal record). Photocopies aren’t acceptable.

Our expert apostille in Pittsburgh can also help with the retrieval of some documents (like marriage certificates or divorce decrees). If you can’t find a document, don’t let it be a barrier that holds you up.
The Department of State allows you to leave a document in their dropbox or mail it off to them. However, if it doesn’t mean the Pennsylvania requirements, it will be sent back to you and could delay the process.
That’s why it’s often better to let an expert take you through the process.
