I have been told that I have to get an Apostille on the document. Where can I get that?
The Apostille is the verifying certificate by the Foreign & Commonwealth Office in the UK which confirms that the Notary who has sealed your documents is a properly qualified person to notarise the documents for you. The Apostille is obtained by sending your document to the Foreign & Commonwealth Office Legalisation Department in Milton Keynes together with their fee of £30 per document plus £5.50 postage fee. The Legalisation Department will usually return the document to you within a week. Most Notaries will provide this service for you. We can arrange for your documents to receive the Apostille. In addition, we can also then send your documents directly to the lawyer or your representative in the overseas jurisdiction.
