Do you need a Divorce Decree Apostille?
A divorce decree issued from the Superior Court in the State of California must be a certified copy issued and signed by the Deputy Clerk. In order to obtain a certified copy, you will need to contact the Superior Court and speak with department that can provide you a certified copy. Please, note that every County (58 Counties in California) has a Superior Court.
For example, if you were divorced in Los Angeles, California, you will need to contact the Los Angeles Superior Court in order to obtain a certified copy. Please, note that our office is unable to obtain a certified copy. We can only process the documents that you mail in for processing. There are service companies available who can obtain a certified copy for you.
We can apostille a divorce decree once we receive it at our offices.
A divorce decree must include:
– Certified copy issued from the Superior Court
– Seal, signature, and name of Deputy Clerk
– Must have seal (blue/purple in color) of the Superior Court
Here is an example:
We recommend that you ask a manager/supervisor to sign the certified copy. On average, 50% of divorce decree’s we receive at our office is rejected by the State because the signature of the Deputy Clerk is not on file with the State of California. In order to avoid this, we ask that you obtain a signature of the manager or supervisor.
