Why do you need Apostille legalization?
Many foreign authorities require that the document be legalized if you use a public document abroad. Legalization is a confirmation from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs that the signature on the given document is genuine.
Legalization merely confirms the signature's authenticity and does not confirm the document's contents. This confirmation is given in a regular stamp or a so-called Apostille stamp. Legalization gives the legal document force abroad; the document obtains legal validity and becomes active. Without legalization, the document has no legal effect in that country.
To know if your marriage document from Denmark needs apostille legalization, we recommend contacting your local authority. If you are told by the local authority that your marriage document is to have apostille legalization, you can ask your consultant to assist you with it.
