A: After your ceremony, your officiant will file your license at the Clark County Recorder's Office here in town, which ensures legal recognition in the United States.

It is advisable to contact your local government agency to learn what is required regarding paperwork.
A: An Apostille is simply the name for a specialized certificate, issued by the Secretary of State here in Nevada. In 1961, many countries joined together to create a simplified method of "legalizing" documents for universal recognition.

If you are a resident of the US, you will NOT need an Apostille.
