Schmidt & Schmidt offers the legalization of documents from the Philippines.
The Philippines has joined the Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalization for Foreign Public Documents in the year 2019. Therefore no diplomatic authentication or legalization of documents from the Philippinesis required for the legal communication with another member state of the convention. The documents only need to be stamped with an "apostille" by the issuing state's authorities in order to be valid in the state of destination. However, due to recent accession, in most cases consular legalization of documents may be required.
By consular legalization the signature and the seal of foreign documents are authenticated. Responsible is the respective embassy of the country in which the document shall be used.
The following documents can be legalized:
- Extracts from the commercial register
- Certificates of civil status (certificates of birth, death, marriage and divorce)
- Education documents (school reports, certificates, diplomas)
- Judicial decisions
- Notarially certified copies of documents
- Notarially certified translations
- Further notarial documents (authorizations, last will, declarations)
