What Is an Apostille?
An “apostille” is a form of certification or authentication, typically issued by the Secretary of State of each state, which is attached to official documents such as birth certificates and power of attorney forms that are being used in countries participating in the Hague Convention of 1961. It is issued by the California Secretary of State in both Sacramento and at the Los Angeles regional apostille office.
Why Clients Trust Us
We are experienced California Apostille Agents and licensed notaries located close to the Secretary of State’s regional LA office. We take your critical documents seriously and do not use any telephone operators with headsets or messengers that can lead to miscommunication or misplacing of your documents. One notary takes your document through the entire process.
Our Los Angeles Location
We are located in the Los Angeles area so you can meet us near a location we will be visiting or at our office (we can also travel to you for a reasonable mobile fee). If you are outside LA or California (or within LA but trying to avoid the out-of-control traffic), you can FedEx your documents to California Apostille Agents.
The CA Apostille Process
The first, and probably the most important, step in our CA apostille management process is to make sure you have the right type of document and, if your document is already notarized, that it was properly notarized. You would be surprised to know how many documents are notarized incorrectly and are rejected by he Secretary of State. Please click “Learn More” for the complete list of steps.
