Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

In the US it is called "notarized" and that can be done in a matter of minutes by the clerk of court where you obtain the marriage license by you asking them for a true or certified copy of the marriage license. The US does not use "apostille" they use a notary and the clerks are notaries or have one in their office who will certify it.

This can all be done the same day of your marriage.
