An adoption dossier is a file that potential adoptive parents compile with detailed information about themselves. It is used by adoption agencies to determine whether the couple is suitable to adopt a child. An apostille is a certificate that verifies the authenticity of a public document. It is typically used for documents that will be used in a foreign country.
Adoption dossiers are apostilled for use in foreign countries in order to certify that the documents are authentic and can be used for legal purposes. The apostille ensures that the document will be accepted by officials in the foreign country. If you need to get your documents apostilled or notarized in the state of Connecticut, you will first need to contact the Connecticut Secretary of the State. There are two types of documents issued by public authorities that can be apostilled. Documents issued for use in a member country of the Hague Convention on Apostilles may be apostilled by that country's competent authority. The competent authority varies from country to country.
Documents issued for use in a non-member country may be apostilled by the competent authority of any member country.
In order to get an apostille for an adoption dossier, you must first contact the secretary of state's office in Connecticut and request a certified copy of the dossier. Next, you must contact the embassy or consulate of the country where the adopting parents reside and request an apostille.
