What does an extended marriage certificate issued before 1996 look like?

Look at the back of your marriage certificate... Is there a color stamp and the original signature of the Acting City Clerk? If not, your document is not a certified copy, and is not eligible for the legalization by an apostille or foreign embassy. But do not worry, we can get a certified copy of a Manhattan, Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens or Staten Island marriage certificate, and then have it apostilled or legalized by a foreign embassy.
