Apostille Documents for International Adoption

If you are considering adopting a child from another country, congratulations! You have a long road ahead of you – but it’s absolutely worth it. International adoption involves adopting a child from another country. This legal process requires proper procedures and heaps of documents, most of which require an apostille. One very important step we can help with is to apostille documents for international adoption.

Some Documents Required for International Adoption

Some common documents needed for international adoption are:

  • Bank statements or tax records
  • Marriage license
  • Divorce certificate
