NYS criminal recordThe most comprehensive way to conduct a New York criminal record search is through the New York State Office of Court Administration ("OCA"). The OCA covers all 62 counties in New York State dating back to at least 1993 (the counties vary as to how far back they search) and includes all town and village records as of 2007. 

The best thing about the OCA "No Criminal Record Letter" is that no fingerprints are required. The search is based on the exact name and date of birth.

Marriage certificate NYC certified acceptable for apostilleYour marriage was registered in one of the five boroughs of New York City (Manhattan, Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens or Staten Island), a certified copy of your marriage certificate was issued by the Marriage Bureau of the City of New York.   Is it acceptable for a New York apostille or embassy legalization? 

Look at the back of the document... Does it have 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. Please do not despair, we can assist you with obtaining a certified copy of a Manhattan, Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens or Staten Island marriage certificate, and then have it apostilled.
