Los Angeles Consulate and Embassy Legalization

We provide Legalization for your documents through the Consulate General or Embassy offices in Los Angeles.

If the Consulate or Embassy has a location here in Los Angeles, we can provide Los Angeles notary service, California Apostille, and legalization of your documents. Our California Apostille service agents are also Los Angeles notaries ensuring that your documents are notarized correctly for international use. The destination country will determine if your document receives a California Apostille or Certification. Countries who are members of the Apostille convention will receive an Apostille. Those countries which are not, will receive a Certification.

The Apostille only certifies the authenticity of the signature and the capacity of the person who has signed the document. The Apostille does not certify the contents of the document. Before contacting our office, it’s important to have your original documents in-hand or know what kind of documents you’ll need an Apostille on. Not every document qualifies for a California Apostille so please call us before you mail in your documents.

We provide authentication ( legalization) services to corporations, law firms, U.S. citizens and foreign nationals on all documents that will be used in foreign countries.

We authenticate personal documents such as birth, marriage, divorce, and death certificates as well as, other “vital documents”. We serve businesses that need to legalize documents for foreign trade such as power of attorney, invoices, certificate of origin, etc.
