Next Steps After Losing a Loved One


A Mountain of Emotions and Responsibilities

When you lose someone you love, someone you care about, life can quickly turn into a swirl of emotions, thoughts, and responsibilities. Whether someone is taken from our world suddenly or slowly, it hurts, and everyone who was close to the deceased requires time – time to heal, time to reflect, and time to process. This process can last days, weeks, and in many cases months and years, depending on the closeness of the relationship. Everyone has their separate approach, but for the immediate family members, the death of a loved one is compounded by a series of responsibilities and planning.

Apostille vs. Authentication: What’s the Difference?


Texas Apostille Service

When you are attempting to send a document abroad, whether it be a birth certificate, a judgment, an extract of a register, or even a notarial attestation, your typical method will include an apostille. A form of certification set out in the 1961 Hague Convention, an apostille allows date to be understood by the receiving country regardless of the language of the issuing country.
There are, however, a few countries that are not a signatory of the Hague Convention, in which case an authentication will be needed. In essence, an authentication does the same thing as an apostille, and will be attached to the document in question.

State Department Apostille

If a document originates in Texas, whether it is certified by the Texas Health Department or the state, it is not uncommon for the document to be delivered to the U.S. Secretary of State, designating them as the proper person to sign off on the document. The U.S. apostille or authentication would then be attached to state documents after the state apostille/authentication has been attached. Here in Texas, we at Austin Pro Courier can handle all of your Apostille and Authentication needs. Visit us online today or give us a call toll free: (855) 880-6886.
