What has come to be known as the Apostille is slightly misleading because the Apostille is only the last step of an involved process. The Hague Convention has provided procedures, agreed to by its signatories, for the legalization of documents. For example, if you want to go to France to teach for a year and you want your diploma recognized, you might get an Apostille on it before you go. If you have different licenses and you want them to be recognized as genuine in another country, again, you get an Apostille. What some very bright individual figured out is that the process of legalization is a process of legitimization. The Hague convention recognizes statutory courts, constitutional courts, and even ecclesiastical courts. So what kind of court is a “common law” court? This procedure is formally called “expatriation.” Others prefer to describe it as rebutting a presumption. But in any case, one takes it upon himself to make known that he is a sovereign. This person has discovered an entity, an all capital letter name, a trust with a number, that is being confused with him. The person also has learned of certain allegations of fraud and deceit surrounding this entity vis-à-vis the agency that purportedly created it. So the sovereign offers to give it back to the creator(s) for destruction. This is done by a commercial affidavit called the Cancellatura of Foreign Instruments. It is an involved document that is mailed to the State Secretary of State, as well as the Secretaries of State and Treasury in Washington D.C. These agents are given time to answer the affidavit and send an officer to come and collect all the instruments of collateral held by the sovereign making the offer. This means he is offering back the social security card, driver’s license, credit cards, union cards, commercial and occupational permits and licenses. If you actually get a response from an offer like this, let us know… no one has come calling to collect yet. What many do receive in the mail, after about three months, is a strange letter from the IRS. It addresses the person in their sovereign capacity, acknowledges the affidavit, and says “We don’t think it is in our best interest to argue this.” Such a letter is record of default. The parties are given ten days to respond, during which time the person goes to the common law court and secures a “witnessing” of his stated intent to reaffirm that character and status he has always had since birth… SOVEREIGNTY. The jury signs his paperwork and it is notarized. Then the person takes the papers to a notary public and gets an Actual Notice of Apostille signed and notarized for presentation to the Secretary of State. It is affixed on the top of the documents prepared by the common law court. The
Secretary, by treaty, has to attach the Apostille to the documents upon request. Once completed, the highest constitutional office in the state has just made legitimate your claim of who and what you truly are. What you do with it from there is your business. Be creative, be wise, but most of all have fun.
