An adoption dossier is a collection of adoption-related documents that prospective adoptive parents may need to submit to an adoption agency or foreign government in order to complete an adoption. A dossier may include birth certificates, marriage licenses, health records, and other personal documentation. An apostille is a legal certification of a document's authenticity, typically used for international legal purposes.
There are many reasons why you may need to apostille an adoption dossier. One reason is that if you are adopting a child from another country, you may need to show that the dossier is authentic in order to prove your parental rights. Another reason is that if you are moving to another country with your adopted child, you may need to show that the dossier is authentic in order to obtain a visa for your child. Only certain types of documents can be apostilled, and the process differs from state to state. In New York, the Division of Corporations within the Department of State is responsible for issuing apostilles for select types of documents. These include: birth certificates, death certificates, marriage certificates, and articles of incorporation. More information on how to obtain an apostille in New York State can be found on the Department of State website.
