Different Types of Solicitor Certification

For the purpose of legalising a document with an apostille, the document must bear the stamp of a recognised legal authority or, alternatively, the signature of a public official or a solicitor. Many documents will, therefore, require some form of solicitor certification as part of the legalisation process.

There are various forms of solicitor certification and the most suitable depends on the nature of the document.

Guatemala Now Accepts The apostille

As of the 18th of September 2017 the Apostille convention has entered into force in Guatemala. The state of Guatemala is now one of 115 states that recognise the apostille with more countries signing up to the convention each year.

The Apostille Convention was introduced in 1961 as a means to reduce the bureaucracy involved when recognising a foreign public document between member states.

In simple terms, this means that the state of Guatemala will now accept any foreign document that has been issued with the apostille.
