Document Procurement, Legalization and Apostille
Immigration processes frequently require companies and their employees to provide a dizzying array of vital records and other personal and corporate documents, many of which must be authenticated via legalization or apostille before they will be accepted as legally valid by foreign governments. This can include birth certificates, marriage certificates, university diplomas and transcripts, criminal records, corporate certificates of good standing and much more. We help clients procure these documents, and we can also facilitate apostille or legalization so that they will be recognized and accepted in foreign countries. We can handle local, state and federal level authentications in the United States, as well as authentications in many other countries, and can process matters on an expedited basis. We also assist with correction of vital records, most often for use in the Italian Citizenship process. This includes working with vital records authorities to document and correct inaccuracies that often exist in documents that are 50+ years old. Note that the correction process can be very difficult and slow, and sometimes involves bringing suit against vital records agencies that are unwilling to make necessary corrections.
