Just thought I would update anyone who is getting documents legalised at FCO in Milton Keynes. I was told today that notarised phtocopies of marriage and birth certificates are not accepted, only original documents, something which the notary I went to failed to tell me as I handed over the £40. My degree certificate copy was fine but not the others. Apparently all solicitors should know this now so they are being very naughty not telling people. Also for what it is worth, if you submit a postal application do not expect to hear back for about 3 - 4 weeks as they are running 3 weeks behind at the moment. Hope that is of some help. I know only too well what a stressful process the whole document attestation is. Hopingg I will have it al sorted in the next week so I can relax a bit!
