What is an Apostille?
An "apostille" is a form of authentication issued to documents for use in countries that participate in the Hague Convention of 1961. Please see the list of participating countries here.
Can I apostille copies of my documents?
Yes you can. The issuing State Department will require you to have your copies officiated by a Notary Public prior to submitting for authentication. Most states allow notaries to certify copies. States that currently do not permit this practice include Alabama, Alaska, Kentucky, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Mississippi, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, South Dakota and Tennessee. Other States restrict the type of documents. Such as California which limits Notaries to certifying copies of powers of attorney or if requested by a court or Secretary of State. Florida and Pennsylvania for example, authorize Notaries to certify copies of most documents. However both States do not allow certifying copies of marriage, death, and birth certificates. Each state has varying sets of rules which is why it is important to inquire with your Notary if document copy certification is allowed by their commission.
Are there alternatives to certifying copies of documents in States that do not allow it?
Yes there are. It's called a "copy certification by document custodian." Instead of a notary directly certifying a document is a true copy they can notarize a statement explaining that the individual in possession of the copy attests to it's accuracy.
