Copy of Sookee's custody certificateThis month we look at our custody document template. We usually use it to prove that our client, who may be applying for a visa or citizenship, has custody over a child. This is a sensitive area as laws around custody and adoption vary from country to country. When filling out the template we need to make sure that it reflects exactly all the information contained in the original document. That may require explaining any legal differences. If there is any doubt, the Immigration or Citizenship officer will request a full translation of the source document. As usual, our guidelines for selectivetranslations apply. If you don’t have them, request a copy. Click the image to find out more.
