We charge a fixed fee of £95 (including VAT, application fee and courier costs) for each document to process your Apostille (legalisation) application.
Combined courier costs can be obtained if you are sending more than 1 document to be legalised.
Our fees for our Express Apostille service are £170 (including the FCO Apostille fee of £75, and courier fee to/from FCO).
Our fees for our Premium Apostille Service is £ 195 (including apostille fees) for our 24 hr turnaround service).
Apostille (legalisation) is a certificate and embossed seal applied on the requested document and confirms the validity of a document, signature, stamp, or seal.
You can get certain official UK documents 'apostilled' (‘legalised’) by asking the Foreign Commonwealth Office to confirm that the signature, stamp or seal is from a UK public official.
You might need to do this if an official in another country has asked you to provide a UK document and they’ve said it must be apostilled (legalised).
Appleman Legal will check the document, including whether the signature, stamp or seal is genuine. They’ll then have it legalised by attaching a stamped official certificate (an ‘apostille’) to it.
You cannot get documents issued outside the UK legalised using this service - get them legalised in the country they were issued.
We often draw up Powers of Attorney for Commonwealth (or former Commonwealth) countries, and an English Power of Attorney is accepted. We do these mostly for the Mauritian, Indian and Pakistani Jurisdiction.
If you require us to do this for you, then we require the following information from you:
A statutory declaration is a legal document, and is commonly used to allow a person to affirm something to be true for the purposes of satisfying a legal requirement or regulation, where no other evidence is available.
An affidavit is very similar, but it is a sworn document, and is often used for matters to do with court.
We can prepare the statutory declaration or affidavit for you. Our fees for the preparation of this type of formal legal document range between £80 and £150, depending on what is required.
You will need to let us know what guidance you have been provided with, and email to us the detail of the content of the document, and we can then prepare the document in legal form.
Sponsorship Declarations no longer (for several years now) need to have a notarial signature and seal, and can be attested by a qualified Solicitor. Our Solicitors charge £5 (cash fee) for dealing with this for you. The document needs to be fully completed beforehand, but you must not sign it until you see the Solicitor. The Solicitor will not check anything, but just require you to certify that the details you have given are correct and sign the document.
