How to order an apostille for your court document?
Simply purchase your apostille online and post your document to us with the order confirmation sheet. This is normally the quickest way to obtain the apostille.
Send your document to us by your preferred delivery method. We recommend Royal Mail Special Delivery or a Secure Courier.
Most court documents are stamped by the court or bear the signature of an official court officer. The apostille is issued against this stamp or signature. This document will be processed under our standard apostille service. In the event your document has not been correctly processed stamped by the court, we will recommend our solicitor certification service.
