What to do with birth certificates?  

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.  



What to do with 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.
