Authentication of Documents

Documents issued in one country, which need to be used in another country, must be "authenticated" or "legalized" before they can be recognized as valid in the foreign country.   Such documents range from powers of attorney, affidavits, birth, death and marriage records, corporate papers, deeds, patent applications and other legal papers.    A legalization procedure requires obtaining a special "apostille" certificate attached to a document if it is intended for use in a country which is a party to a treaty called the Hague Convention.   If the country where the documents will be used is a not a party to the Convention, a time-consuming process of obtaining series of certifications known as "chain authentication method" should apply.   We provide document authentication and legalization services for any country in the world.   We specialize in providing sets of documents required by the governments of the Russian Federation, Ukraine and other countries of the Commonwealth of Independent States (former USSR), including certified English translation, to be used for establishing business entities in these countries.
