Getting an Apostilles for Adoption ReasonsBirth and Marriage Certificates
Your marriage certificate is from PA as well.
That makes things easier. In the beginning of these instructions, I had told you to get 4 certified copies of your marriage (and birth certicates). 2 of these are for the dossier. That means 2 need the apostille.
So, please send 2 marriage certificates to PA Secy of State along with all the other docs.
Your birth certificates DO NOT need to be apostilled. Earlier, in the “read me first”, I asked that you order 4 certified copies of your birth certificates. That is the total number you’ll need for the entire adoption process. 2 of them will be for the dossier. However, they do not need to be apostilled. So when you send us the dossier, just include 2 of the 4 copies.
For any divorces, the divorce certificates need to be presented with the adoption dossier. Only photocopies of these divorce certificates/degrees are required. No apostilles. Just copies of each one.
