Apostille San Francisco

In the State of California, we provide California Apostille Services in San Francisco and Los Angeles.  If you are in California and need your documents authenticated, you can either mail-in your documents to our San Francisco office or our Los Angeles office.  If you are outside of California, we recommend that you mail-in your documents to our Los Angeles office.

A California apostille can only be issued by the Secretary of State.  California commissioned notaries do not have authorization to issues apostilles or provide legal advice; unless the notary is an attorney.  Some documents do require notarization prior to receiving an apostille.  Documents issued from any of the 58 California counties, Superior Courts, California State, or notarized within it’s borders must be apostilled from the State of California.

The most common documents we receive are: birth certificates, death certificates, power of attorney documents, affidavits, marriage certificates, Superior Court divorce decrees, and corporate documents.  We can also copy certify your passport and your drivers license.  Certain countries may require your driver license to be apostilled to establish identity or driving privileges.

For some documents, you must have your signature notarized.  For example, a power of attorney will require notarization prior to receiving an apostille from the State.  When choosing a notary, it’s important to find a notary who has experience and one who will follow California state notarial laws.  Documents notarized incorrectly will be rejected by the State.

Our San Francisco office can apostille your documents in 2-3 business days.  Unfortunately, the California Secretary of State does not have an office in San Francisco.  If you are in a rush and need your documents authenticated quickly, we recommend that you mail-in your documents to our Los Angeles office.
