Death Certificate and Estate Documents Legalised for Foreign Use
Death Certificates may need an apostille or authentication when an overseas authority has requested a copy of the document.
Following a death you may find overseas organisations including government bodies, courts and solicitors request a copy of the death certificate. This may be to register the death, make a claim on a pension, to resolve the deceased’s estate or to sell a property.
Without an apostille the death certificate may not be accepted. In addition you may need to get a copy of the will and estate documentation legalised by apostille or authentication.
Death certificates can only have the apostille certificate attached to the original document. We cannot process photocopies or scanned copies of death certificates. We can however make duplicate notarised copies of the original death certificate, which notarised copy, can in turn be legalised by apostille certificate or authentication depending on the destination country or countries.
Do not hesitate to contact us by telephone or email for guidance with your document legalisation. You are also welcome to visit us at our offices to discuss your options, the proposed legalisation process and costs and time frames involved.
