Copy Adoption Certificates

All copy adoption certificates we supply are fully certified copies which are suitable for all official purposes. Some reasons for obtaining a certificate include an application for marriage, applying for an academic course, applying for a passport or a driver's licence. One of the most common reasons is that the original certificate was lost or mislaid.

Replacement adoption certificates do not require a signed release or similar for the order to be processed. Nor does further documentation (e.g. driver's licence or passport) have to produced.
Generally, there will be no special needs for the order to be completed, beyond the initial supplying of information and payment.

Types of copy adoption certificates

There are two types of adoption certificates, the full adoption certificate. This is a copy of the entry in the adoption register, giving all the recorded details, the short certificate. This only gives the child's full name, Date of Birth, Sex and (where known) country or district of birth. It contains no reference to the fact of adoption. It does not give the name and particulars of the mother or father. A short certificate is issued free of charge when an adoption is first registered.

There is no choice between non certified and certified - all certificates issued are certified. All certificates issued are issued with an official seal, some certificates have a raised seal or a stamped seal.

We can supply birth certificates from the United Kingdom (UK) of Great Britain (GB) England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales, and many overseas births where the location was once a British territory, or if the event was registered with a British consulate.

Require an Apostille (Legalised) UK Certificate? An Apostille is a certificate confirming that a signature or a seal on a certificate is genuine. The process of obtaining an Apostille is called Legalisation. Legalisation is usually required by foreign authorities before they will allow a UK document to be used for official purposes in their country. Apostille Certificates issued in the UK will be accepted in the following countries without further legalisation - Apostille Countries.
