A divorce decree is a court order that requires one party to pay spousal support or otherwise comply with the terms of a divorce. An apostille is a document that is used to authenticate the origin of a document for use in another country. Apostilles are typically used for documents such as birth certificates, marriage certificates, and death certificates.
A divorce decree needs to be apostilled if it is being used in a foreign country. The apostille will confirm that the document is authentic and has been issued by a competent authority. To get an Apostille in Hawaii, contact the Hawaii Notary Public Office. The documents which can be apostilled are public documents. Public documents are typically issued by a government agency and include, but are not limited to, birth certificates, death certificates, marriage certificates, divorce decrees, articles of incorporation, power of attorney documents, and more.
In order to get an apostille for a divorce decree, you must first contact the Hawaii state department of health and request a certified copy of the decree. Once you have the certified copy, you must then contact the Hawaii state department of public safety and have them notarize the document. After the document is notarized, you must then send it to the Hawaii state department of public safety to be apostilled.
