2- What is an Apostille?

An apostle is a legal certification that makes a document from one country valid in another (provided that both are signatories to the 1961 Hague Convention abolishing the requirement for legalization for foreign public documents).

The apostille has to be issued by the Department of State of the State where the document was originated. You can go to the Division od Corporations in your State, type Apostilles and you will find the Document Processing Dates page.

For Florida you can go to : htpps://www.dos.myflorida.com/sunbiz/document-processing-dates/
