What is an Apostille ?
An Apostille is a certificate which verifies the seal and signature of the person who authenticated the document (a Notary Public in this case). There are 2 steps in getting an apostille certificate attached to your document.
1. Get your document notarized (jurat) by a notary public.
2. Send your document to the Secretary of State or an equivalent governmental agency in your state to get the apostille certificate.
