An adoption dossier is a name given to a compilation of documents required by an adopting family in order to complete an international adoption. All adopting families must submit a dossier to the country from which they intend to adopt in order for their adoption to be processed. A dossier typically includes documents such as birth certificates, marriage licenses, proof of financial stability, and fingerprints. Apostille is a certification provided under the Hague Convention of 1961 for authenticating documents for use in foreign countries.
The dossier needs to be apostilled so that it can be sent to the country of adoption and be recognized as a legal document. There is no central issuing authority for apostilles in the United States. Each state has its own apostille process, which can be done through the state's Secretary of State office. In California, apostilles can be obtained through the California Secretary of State's Apostille and Authentication Office. .
In order to get an apostille, you must first contact the Secretary of State's office in San Francisco and request the apostille.
