Apostille for Articles of Incorporation
Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws are documents that provide the legal framework for a company. These documents ultimately ensure liability protection when forming an LLC or corporation. An Article of Incorporation also referred to as the Corporate Charter or Certificate of Incorporation, puts forth rules and regulations for the management of a corporation. Articles of Incorporation state the name of the business, purpose of the business, and other general facts.
Bylaws are drafted by the directors or founders of the corporation and are filed under the Article of Incorporation. While the Article of Incorporation is general in nature, Bylaws refer to the specifics. Bylaws can cover a wide range of topics, including how board meetings or meetings between shareholders are conducted, how directors are elected, and set the job descriptions and authority levels of officers within the company.
