An adoption dossier is a collection of personal documents and forms that are required in order to adopt a child. The dossier must be completed and submitted to the adoption agency or government office responsible for processing the adoption. An apostille is a certificate issued by a government official that authenticates the origin and contents of a document.
Apostilles are typically requested when adopting a child from another country and submitting the dossier to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). The USCIS requires that all foreign documents, including the adoption dossier, be apostilled before they will review the dossier. According to the Alabama Secretary of State Office, the process for getting an Apostille in Alabama is as follows:
Complete and notarize the Apostille Request Form. Include a self-addressed, stamped envelope. Checks should be made payable to the Alabama Secretary of State.
