Bulgarian Court Documents

Bulgarian Court Documents, Part 1

We emailed you some documents. These aren’t posted here because they are already filled out with your info.  That is why we emailed them to you instead.  These include:

Certificate from Social Worker:  This is something that your social worker has to fill out.  It is sent to your social worker by our social worker, Jennifer.  This is filled out differently for every family, so both Jennifer and your social worker will work on this until our Bulgarian partner approves it.

Your social worker will sign this.  She will have to have her signature notarized.

We need 3 notarized copies of this.

Your Social Worker will mail you these 3 notarized copies.

You will send these 3 notarized (by your social worker) copies for APOSTILLE to your Secretary of State.  (For the address, please revisit your “dossier guidelines” we emailed you in the beginning.)

Declaration Under Art. 89 of the Family Code This document has personal info on it, so we emailed it to you.  It is not linked because it is not a template.  All you have to do is insert what you are being asked in the yellow highlighted parts.

We need this printed out 3 times.  Both parents sign.  Notarize 3 copies. Send 3 copies for Apostille.

Bulgarian Court Documents, Part 2

We are labelilng this “PART 2” for a reason.  The reason is that the docs from “Part 1” are needed first and as quickly as possible so that your case can move forward.  Then, you will also need the docs from “part 2”.  BUT, don’t wait to do “part 2” befor you turn “part 1” in.  “Part 1” goes FIRST.  

Here is what you need for Part 2:

Updated Medical Certificate:  This is the “short”, one-page medical form titled “Medical Form Bulgaria” on this page. 

We’ve already been thru the process of revieiwng this and making sure it looks good.  Hopefully with this update, you’ll just leave the same language as last time (the reviewed/appvoed language) and simply change the date to be date of your current appointment.  If there are changes to your medical form, please send it again for us to review. 

Bulgaria only wants 1 apostilled original of this.  Please send for apostille in your state. 

Updated FBI clearance: Please use the FBI expeditors which you can find here. 

We need just one original (for each parent) apostilled.  The link above tells you how to expedite it, and then tells you how to apostille it.  (Remember, its a federally issued document, so its not going to your state, its going to VA). 

1040 Tax Return:  Take your most recent tax return. Make a copy of the first few pages, where it shows your income. 

Copy and paste the affidavit and the notary oath on the back of the last page.  You can copy and paste the affidavit from this page for your convenience. 

Get it notarized. Send for Apostille in your state.  We only need 1 apostilled tax return. 

Remember…

Part 1 comes before Part 2 and Part 1 should be completed before 2.  Don’t wait to be done with Part 2 to turn in/send Part 1.

Remember…

Part 2 is only 1 apostilled orignal.  But, please make copies of the already apostilled docs  -in Part 2 – and mail those copies to our office in Charlotte.
