Colorado apostille tips:
Colorado law does not allow notaries to make and certify copies of vital records (birth, death certificates) and other public records. Copies of vital records need to be obtained through Colorado Department of Public Health and Enviroment
Colorado apostilles cannot be obtained for improperly notarized documents. This includes cases where the notary appears to have exceeded his or her statutory authority, such as engaging in the unauthorized practice of law.
Sometimes apostille and authentication requests for notarized power of attorney documents (POAs) intended for use in Mexico contain legal conclusions by the notary, including statements about the legal capacities of the parties involved. Some POAs indicate that the notary has read and explained the legal meaning of the document to the grantor. Unless the notary is also an attorney licensed to practice law in Colorado, notarizing these types of documents constitutes the unauthorized practice of law.
Documents must have an original "live-ink" signature (not stamped or photocopied).
