Has anyone had to legalize a foreign document in New York and can offer advice? I’m reading the requirements online and it’s 1) get doc notarized, 2) get doc certified by a county clerk (who is this??) 3) get doc apostilled by a Secretary of State (who is this??) then 4) get doc legalized by embassy (Vietnam, if that helps). Are these really the steps… 😭
