Getting married in Austria?U.S. citizens may enter into marriage in Austria. The procedure is, however, somewhat complex. For this reason, U.S. citizens contemplating marriage in Austria should thouroughly prepare all required documents. If you plan to get married in Austria, you will need a Marriage Affidavit/Certificate of No Impediment. It may be executed before a notary public in the United States (in this case it will require a Hague apostille) or Marriage Affidavit/Certificate of No Impediment (external link, U.S. Embassy in Austria) executed before a Consular Officer of the U.S. Embassy in Vienna.

How to apostilleIn order for a Virginia birth, marriage or death certificate to be apostilled or authenticated, it must have been issued by the Virginia Department of Vital Records within the past 12 months. This is an absolute must. Therefore, if your copy is older than a year, it will not be acceptable. Vital Record documents should only be signed by a State Registrar or Deputy State Registrar. Virginia law prohibits notarization of vital record (original or certified copy.)

Virginia marriage certificates can also be obtained from the Circuit Court in the city/county where the marriage was recorded. These black and white certificates must be accompanied by a Triple Seal Page, also called an Authentication of Record. This is a separate sheet of paper from the Court with the signatures and seals of the Court Clerk and Judge. This additional page must be attached to your document prior to submitting for authentication.

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.
