GUIDELINES FOR APOSTILLE AUTHENTICATION

   1.  DESTINATION COUNTRY: 

        State Apostilles can only be issued for countries that belong to the Hague Convention. If your destination country is not a member,

        you will most likely need a U.S. Department of State Certification and/or Embassy Legalization; we will advise which.

   2.  DOCUMENT PREPARATION:

        A. Required Signature

             i.  All documents presented for a California Apostille are limited to documents with specific signatures.  Make sure that your                  document has a qualifying signature. Call us if you are unsure. (949)614-5291.

            ii.  If you are producing  your own document, such as a Power of Attorney, contract bids or any printed document that requires

                 your signature, we will notarize your signature at no additional charge when we pick up your document. (Local Only)

           iii.  Documents mailed to us that require a California notarization for counties other than Orange, LA or Riverside must be

                 notarized before sending them to us.

           iv.  California education docs such as High School/College Diplomas, transcripts, etc.,  should also be notarized by the school

                 or university if the original copy is to authenticated and sent to the country of destination.

            v.  If your document has multiple signatures, verify if each signature requires an Apostille authentication; remember, it is the

                 signature that is authenticated, not the document.

           vi.  All documents seeking an apostille should have a certification date within the past five years.

       B. Translation: Docs for USDOS apostille/certification authentication must have English translation if not written in English
