Fickey Martinez Law Firm has many clients who are Philippine Citizens. Some of our kindest clients are Filipinos who would frequently bring our office staff Lumpia and Pancit.
When our office learned in 2019 that the Philippine Embassy could accredit an NC Notary Public to assist in the Authentication, Acknowledgement, or Red Ribboning Process, we applied to the Embassy to better assist our clients, but also to more conveniently help the local Philippine Community.
For More Guidance on the Philippine Embassy’s Authentication requirements, please visit their website: http://www.philippineembassy-usa.org/philippines-dc/consular-services-dc/faq-dc/#authentication
