Apostille Declaration of Domicile
Whether moving to the United States for full-time residency or keeping your residence here while you also live abroad, you may be asked for a declaration of domicile.
A declaration of domicile is used to prove residency in the United States. While you may have several homes in various places worldwide, your residence is where you spend most of your time.
What Do You Need for a Declaration of Domicile?
Many counties within your state have a form you can fill out to prove residency in that area. Their declaration of domicile is often on their letterhead.
Besides this form, you may also be asked for other documents to prove residency. These documents can include:
- Utility bills
- Bank statements
- Color copy of your driver’s license
- Real estate ownership
- Property rental lease
- Property taxes
- Federal income tax returns
Check your paperwork to verify which documents the country requires you to produce to prove residency.
You will most likely need to notarize these documents before receiving the apostille.
What if You Have Been Living Abroad Lately?
As a general rule, a declaration of domicile requires you to spend more time here in the United States than anywhere else. But if you are currently living abroad, you must be able to show that this is temporary and you still plan to make the United States your long-term home.
Perhaps you are working overseas or going to school. You can prove these are temporary by showing an end date of living outside the United States.
