Document Legalisation

A deed poll is a formal legal document that can be used to change your name. This can be a document you have created yourself or a template obtained from a solicitor or deed poll agency. When you sign the document the witness could be anyone; whether this is a friend, a colleague or a family member. However, in order for the apostille to be issued the document would need to be certified by a UK solicitor or Notary Public.

We make the apostille service as simple as possible.

For ONLY £54* we arrange for your deed poll to be issued with the apostille.

* The fee is £54.00 assuming you have already had the document certified by a UK solicitor or Notary Public. If this has not yet been done please contact us for advice.
