Preparing Certificates for Adoption Dossier

What To Do With Birth Certificates?

Good news! Your birth certificates DO NOT need to be apostilled.

They still need to be included in your dossier, just don’t need an apostille.  Please include 2 certified originals (of the 4 certified copies which I asked you to get earlier in these instructions) in each set of your dossier. 

Remember, your dossier is in 2 sets.

What About Any Divorce Certificates?

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.
