GUIDELINES FOR APOSTILLE AUTHENTICATIONS

COUNTRY OF DESTINATION
There are two types of countries of destination: Hague Convention and Non-Hague Convention. 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 in addition to the certification by the U.S. State of origin. We will review and advise which is applicable.

DOCUMENT PREPARATION

  1. 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.
  2. 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)
  3. 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.
  4. California education docs, such as High School/College Diplomas, transcripts, etc.,  should also be notarized by the school. We can do this for you for local schools and colleges.
  5. 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.
  6. All documents seeking an apostille should have a certification date within the past five years.
  7. If your document is written in a foreign language and needs the U.S. Department of State Authentication, it must be accompanied with an English translation

WE WILL PERSONALLY REVIEW YOUR DOCS WITH YOU TO ENSURE PROCESSING WITHOUT ERROR OR DELAY. (Pickup/delivery only)
(WE PROCESS  MAIL-IN APOSTILLE REQUESTS  FOR ALL 50 STATES)
