If you are going to use British documents overseas for business or personal reasons for example you have been offered employment overseas and you are no longer resident in the UK, and you need someone to act on your behalf. Or you have a foreign document and you need to verify its authenticity eg divorce certificate. You may be asked to have your documents legalized.
The process involves checking the signature seal or stamp on all documents (s) to confirm it is genuine. Then an Apostille certificate is attached by the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) to confirm. Legalization is the process of authenticating or certifying a legal document so a foreign country's legal system will recognize it as valid and with full legal effect.
