How To Apostille Birth Certificates

how to apostille birth certificates

In Massachusetts, there are two methods for obtaining an apostille on a birth certificate. It’s always a question of what will be accepted by the receiving nation. Countries like Germany, Japan, Morocco, India, and Italy, for example, are more likely to accept a copy of the official birth certificate than the original or exemplified version. What are your options for doing this task on your own? Most notaries in Boston MA won’t know what to do with your birth certificate copy to start the apostille process correctly, because authenticating papers isn’t one of their authorized functions.
