If you are intent upon moving abroad to work or live, there are many instances where you might be required to have your marriage certificate document recognized.  The Canadian Apostille process would require that the document proceed through a system that is referred to as authentication and legalization.  The document is first be authenticated by the authentication section of Global Affairs Canada.  Once authenticated, the marriage certificate document legalized by the specific diplomatic mission.  There are specific rules that must be followed and they are defined by Global Affairs Canada as well as the particular Embassy or Consular Office.  At Capital Authentication, we are very familiar with the authentication and legalization process, often referred to as Apostille or Attestation.  We look forward to being of assistance.

What is the Capital Authentication advantage as it relates to the authentication and legalization process?

At Capital Authentication we believe in being fully transparent and we have made every effort to clearly post our fees on our website.  We offer four different processing options depending upon the degree of urgency that a client may require their documents to be processed.  Even with this offering, we have developed a process that is referred to as the Completion Time method.  When determining fees, we like to take into consideration our clients timeline, the time needed to authenticate the documents at Global Affairs, the time that an Embassy will take to complete the legalization and lastly the return courier transit time.   All of this is factored into our fees and we suggest which of the four processing options are available.  To us, we feel that this is a more client centered approach while keeping costs to a minimum.  When doing some basic due diligence in relation to local competitors, one will quickly see that the fees can vary.  Quite frankly the competitor fees are simply too high.
