If your documents are from another state or have been notarized by a notary outside of California, you will need to contact the Secretary of State in that other state for more information on how to obtain an Apostille.  For example, if you have a birth certificate from another state other than California, you will need to contact that state’s Secretary of State. We only handle documents issued from or notarized in the state of California.

Documents issued or notarized in California are eligible for authentication by the Secretary of State in California.  Our office is located in Los Angeles which allows us to provide you fast same-day apostille service.

If your documents require a notary, you must meet with a local notary to notarize your documents prior to sending us your documents.  These documents include: copy of passport, copy of driver license, power of attorney, affidavits, and more.  If you reside in Los Angeles, we provide complimentary notary service which includes pick-up and delivery.  If you aren’t sure if your documents qualify for an Apostille, you can scan and email us a copy for review prior to mailing us the original documents.

California Apostilles can be complicated. Don’t leave this process to untrained employees or non-professionals who do not fully understand the California Apostille process and the unique requirements of certain countries. Your paperwork could be rejected costing you time and money. Don’t let this mistake happen to you.  We see it countless times at the Secretary of State in Los Angeles.
