questions-apostilles and naturalization cert.

Postby arg1 » Fri Dec 22, 2006 1:54 pm

Hi,

I have some questions about documents. Last night a friend of mine who has completed the dual citizenship process with Portugal told me that documents and apostilles expire within a year. I hadn't heard this before; I didn't think either expired. Clarification on this would be appreciated. My main question is about the naturalization certificate. I have my grandmother's original naturalization certificate. Is that enough? (I'm going through SF). I don't have the petition or oath of allegiance. Thanks in advance.

Keep in mind, however, that the naturalization certificate will not be returned to you; and, of course, you know it will not require an apostille.

You don't need the oath or the petition if you have the actual certificate.

I believe the general rule of thumb is that you need to have a document apostilled within one year of receipt, as the signature of the grantor may change within that time frame (as new people take over positions, retirement, etc.). I believe the apostille itself does not expire.
