Certification and Translation
An apostille, or official government certification, is required for documents to be accepted and presented in other countries that are signatories to the 1961 Hague Convention. These documents can include any vital records, vehicle titles, certificates of incorporation and origin, and academic records.
A car title is a document that serves as proof of ownership and includes identifying information about the car, such as a model and a vehicle identification number (VIN).
If your car title needs to be authenticated by a foreign country that does not accept the apostille, we recommend that you contact us for more details. Our company is available to work with such countries to legalize the title and process federal apostille.
You must meet your local notary in person so they can witness you signing the contract if you are selling your car to a foreign buyer. The car title must be color-copied by either you or the notary, and the local notary will attach a form titled "Copy Certification" to the copy.
In the unfortunate event that your car was stolen and later found in another country, such as Mexico, you will need to provide evidence that you are the only owner of the vehicle. You will need to meet your local notary for this procedure with a colored copy of your car title. It's crucial to confirm both your ownership of the recovered vehicle and the veracity of the color copy of the original document you have in your hands. This is mostly an affidavit under oath to establish ownership.
