Vancouver BC Notary Apostilles Foreign Wedding Documents

If you're planning an overseas destination wedding, it is vital that all the necessary documents are obtained well before you depart. Many counties will require a Canadian "Statement in Lieu of a Certificate of Non-Impediment to Marriage Abroad", or a BC "Marriage Search Certificate". You will also need certified copies of official documents and identification such as your passport or Birth Certificate. Foreign authorities will typically require that these notarized copies be Apostilled in order to be considered valid in that foreign country. A sample Apostille certificate can be seen below. This article explains the legal process and how Brosgall Legal | Apostille Services can assist. 

Marriage Documents and 'Apostille' Explained

Canadian citizens who are getting married overseas must have their documentation Apostilled to be considered valid. Sometimes, this is called 'getting an Apostille', which you were probably told to do by your foreign lawyer or wedding planner. This is exactly what Brosgall Legal does. Getting an Apostille is a unique process where the validity of a document is verified, so that your document becomes valid for use in the foreign country. Our clients most often need their birth certificates and identification Apostilled.
