Maine Secretary of StateMaine apostille tips:

tip 2Certified copies of vital records do not have to be recent. According to Maine Secretary of State, birth certificates dating back to 2004 are acceptable for apostilles.

tip 2The most common reason for the rejection of a notarized document is due to an error by the notary public - the lack of a date on a notarization is the most common error. Please make certain that all notarizations are dated by the Notary Public.

tip 2Your documents may be in a foreign language. However, the notary's statement must be in English.

tip 2Divorce judgments must be certified copies issued by state, court or municipal officials.

tip 2Diplomas and transcripts must be certified by the school registrar, and his/her signature must be properly notarized by a notary public. If you are not able to get a certified and notaried copy, please check our 24-hour apostille service.
