A divorce decree is a court order that legally ends a marriage. An apostille is a simplified form of certification of a document for use in another country.
There are many reasons why someone might need to apostille a divorce decree. In some cases, a person may need to provide proof of their divorce to a foreign government or entity. In other cases, a person may need to provide proof of their divorce to a potential employer or landlord. An apostille can be obtained through the Michigan Department of State. The Apostille Certificate is attached to public documents which are issued by an authority or an official connected with the courts or tribunal of a State Party and which are intended for use in another State Party. The Apostille Certificate certifies the authenticity of the signature, the capacity in which the person signing the document has acted, and identifies the seal or stamp which the document bears. Typical documents apostilled are: educational documents, corporate documents, Powers of Attorney, birth certificates, death certificates, marriage certificates, Letters Rogatory, etc.
