How to Apostille a Notarized Copy of Your Original Document

Copy certifying your documents can be as easy as meeting with a local notary and certifying that it’s a copy of the original.  In some States, a notary can copy certify your documents.  In other States, only you can certify that it’s a copy of the original.

Because of the complexity of going this route, we request that you Contact Us before you mail-in your documents to our office.  Not every document is eligible to be copy certified.  We may also be able to copy certify certain documents if you mail us the original, depending on the State.

When you Contact us, we will need to know:

1. The type of documents you have (Date issued, State, etc..)
2. The U.S. State that your documents will be notarized in.
3. The country that is requesting your documents.

Note: Not every document can be copy certified with a notary.  In fact, in most States, it’s illegal to copy certify vital record documents or document issued by the State, Court, or County.  Most U.S. States have strict requirements on what they will attach an apostille too.

Apostilles can be complicated. Don’t leave this process to untrained employees or non-professionals who do not fully understand the Apostille process and the unique requirements of certain countries. Your paperwork could be rejected costing you time and money. Don’t let this happen to you!
