The quickest discovery of documents in Kyiv and much more

What if you have spilled coffee on your birth certificate or lost your marriage certificate, what do you do? Well, there is only one thing you can do: discover your documents.

Discovery of documents is a procedure that allows the obtaining of document duplicates from the authorities that initially issued them (department for state registration of civil status, court, archive, ministry, etc.).

This procedure is usually necessary when:

  • documents are damaged or original document is lost;
  • it is necessary to obtain documents in a new format or with a “fresh” date of issue;
  • for affixing an apostille or legalization of documents (for instance, in the case when the original is laminated, such a document is not accepted by the ministry).

Recently, for example, a woman came to our office. She said she was planning to immigrate to Germany hence she needed an apostille affixed on her birth certificate. However, she did not know that Germany does not accept old (Soviet) format birth certificates.

Discovery of documents can be the solution to many problems

Obviously, it was easy for us to obtain her birth certificate in the new format with a “fresh” date from the state department for registration of civil status without delay and thereby help the client prepare her documents on time so she could travel abroad.
