To apostille your marriage certificate, you must mail in the original or a certified copy issued by the County Clerk or State to our office for processing. Marriage certificates can only be authenticated from the State of issue. In Massachusetts, there are two methods for obtaining an apostille on a marriage certificate. It’s always a question of what will be accepted by the receiving nation. Countries like Brazil, Argentina, Japan, Chili, India, and Italy, for example, are more likely to accept a copy of the official marriage 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 marriage certificate copy to start the apostille process correctly, because authenticating papers isn’t one of their authorized functions. It is usually a Secretary Of State function.
