A marriage certificate is a legal document that proves that a couple is married. It is signed by the officiant who performed the marriage ceremony and by the witnesses. An apostille is a document that certifies that a document has been properly notarized.
Apostilles are typically used to verify the authenticity of a document for use in another country. In the case of a marriage certificate, an apostille may be required in order to prove the authenticity of the document for use in a foreign country. In order to get an apostille for a document from Mississippi, one must first contact the state agency that issued the document. The state office will then provide a certification that the document is genuine, after which the document can be taken to the U.S. Department of State for an apostille. The Apostille Section of the Nevada Secretary of State's office authenticates certain documents for use in countries that participate in The Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalization for Foreign Public Documents. In order for a document to be apostilled, it must be notarized by a notary public licensed in the state of Nevada, and the notary public’s signature must be on file with the Secretary of State's office. Only those documents originating from Nevada are eligible to be apostilled. A full list of accepted documents can be found here.
