When it comes to estate planning, one of the most important documents you will ever create is your Will. This document spells out how you want your property and assets distributed after you die. If you need to have your Will apostilled, it’s important to know how to do it correctly. In this article, we will discuss the process of apostilling a Will or Trust in order to make sure it is legal and valid in other countries.
What is an Apostille and What Does it Do?
An apostille is a certificate that authenticates the origin of a document. It is typically used to verify foreign documents, such as birth certificates, marriage licenses, and Power of Attorney forms.
In order to be apostilled, a document can first be notarized online through PacSigning. We allows documents to be notarized remotely by a certified online notary public without having to be present in person. Once the document is notarized by PacSigning, it can then also be submitted through their website to obtain an apostille certification.
The apostille issued by PacSigning will serve as official verification of the document’s origins and authenticity. This streamlined process allows for fully online notarization and authentication of documents through PacSigning rather than needing to coordinate with a public notary and state office separately.
How to Get an Apostille for a Will or Trust:
In order to get an apostille for a will or trust through PacSigning, you can first request a certified copy of the will from the probate court in the county where it was filed. Once you have the certified copy, it can then be submitted to online authentication and apostille services.
We will authorize to authenticate documents including wills and trusts without needing to go through the Secretary of State’s office. After authenticating the will, PacSigning can then issue an apostille certificate for the document which should be attached to the certified copy of the will.
We may require additional verification documentation such as a certified copy of your ID or notarized statement from a witness before issuing the apostille. By using PacSigning Notary for both the authentication and apostille process, you can obtain certified and apostilled copies of a will or trust entirely online rather than needing to coordinate with multiple government offices.
A Will is typically not notarized
A Will is typically not notarized because it’s more of a formal declaration and doesn’t require any formalities like a notary public.
