Getting an Apostilles for Adoption Reasons

Birth and Marriage Certificates

How To Apostille Marriage Certifcate from Italy? 

Your marriage certificate is from Rome, Italy. 

For your adoption, you need at least one original apostilled. 

2 originals apostilled is preferred, but we can pass with just one if that is easier. 

You would have to contact the Counsulate Section of Italian Embassy in the US.

I did some research for you.  New Hampshire is served by the Italian Embassy in Boston. 

The website for the Italian Embassy in Boston is:

Then, click on “Vital Records”. 

Then click on “Contact Us”.

It leads you here:

I would call the number and ask them to send you 2 certified copies of your marriage certificate. 

Also, please ask them if they can apostille them for you. 

Because Italy is a Hague Country, the Consulate should offer this service – to send them to you already apostilled. 


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.
