[FOREIGN MARRIAGES OR ADOPTIONS: If you are seeking certification of Iowa's laws because of the marriage or adoption of a non-U.S. citizen, the certified copy of Iowa's law will most likely have to be placed under Apostil to be recognized by the foreign jurisdiction. An Apostil can only be done by the Office of Secretary of State--you must therefore also contact that office in addition to requesting the certified copy of Iowa's law from the Iowa Code Editor.]
Your request will be submitted to the Iowa Code Editor for research and certification. The Code Editor may need to contact you to clarify issues relating to your request. A $15 dollar charge, payable in advance, applies to each request for certification. No sales tax is payable.
