Does anyone know the process for getting documents legalized in the Philippines?

 Exactly how do you mean, Notarized by a lawyer or Authenticated by a court or Your own Embassy? 

 

It really all depends on What it is and who needs it

 

For Instance, your Police Report has to be Authenticated by the Phils Embassy in your own Country.

 

My Life certification each year can be Notarized by a lawyer

I don't mean notarized, though that may be part of the legalization process.

 

I need the documents for use abroad. Unfortunately, the Philippines isn't part of the Apostille system. So documents need to be legalized in order to verify their authenticity for use abroad.

Red Ribbon system from DFA is the Philippines Apostille.

There is a main DFA in Cebu and I would have thought this service is available there  as well as in Manila!

 

Hope this helps. :thumbsup:

Well all I can pass on is my experience. When my fathers estate was going through probate. My sister (the executor) needed my signature on some documents. We went to a local lawyer/notary, signed in his presence he stamped it. Sent it off and everything was accepted. Like I said just my experience. :cheersty:

 Scott that is the way it should be but some Institutions need a little More, because the OP has used the word "Apostille" I get the Impression this is something more than just a Signature.

 

We will wait and see I guess, at his next reply.
