China seal 1Legalization of a marriage certificate for use in China is a lengthy and somewhat complicated procedure. A number of steps need to be followed, and each step has its potential pitfalls which might make other steps impossible. So, if you need to have a marriage certificate issued in the U.S. legalized /authenticated for use in China, how do you do it?

Step 1: Check if your marriage certificate is eligible

As the first step of legalizing a marriage certificate is the Secretary of State in the state where the certificate was issued, you need to check if your document is eiligible. Different states have different requirements. In some states the document has to be recent (e.g. in Virginia it has to be issued within the last 12 months), some states do not accept locally issued marriage certificates (e.g. in New Jersey, only the marriage certificates issued by Trenton Department of Health can be legalized), etc. The easiest way to make sure if your marriage certificate qualifies is to email a copy to us for a free evaluation. We will advise if your document is eligible, and how to proceed.

If your document does not qualify, you will need to order a new certified copy (we can do it for you, please contact us).
