Apostille requirements for a notarized document (Montana)
 

date

UPDATED APRIL 14, 2018

notary-montana The Montana Secretary of State’s office provides Hague apostilles for documents that are to be sent to, or used in, a foreign country. A Montana apostille verifies that the notary public is authorized to provide the notarization and that he/she has done so in accordance with the Montana Code Annotated. Based on experience, there are some common errors that can cause the notarized documents to be rejected for Montana apostilles. The main requirement is that your document must be properly notarized according to Montana statutes.
