In simple terms, the Apostilles act as a stamp of approval for any document to countries that are signatories to the Hague convention of 1961. They certify your US documents to these signatory countries and save you the hassle of seeking other means of authentication and legitimization. Once these documents have received their Apostille service, they are valid to be used internationally. Some of these documents include; divorce judgments, marriage certificates, death certificates, FBI background checks, social security checks, US passports, driver’s licenses, IRS letters, and many more.
