How to Apostille a U.S. Corporate Document

We provide fast Apostille service for U.S. Corporate Documents issued from all 50 U.S. States.  Because of the unique requirements of each State, we recommend that you mail to our office the original or a certified copy issued by the Secretary of State.

For corporate documents prepared by the company itself, the signature of the signer must be notarized by a local notary.  For example: If your company is located in California and you need your corporate bylaws Apostilled, the signer of the document will need his or her signature notarized on the document.  The notary will notarize the signers signature.  We always recommend that the notary place his or her seal next to the signature of the signer.

Here is a list of State documents prepared by either the corporation, chamber of commerce, or the Secretary of State.

Our Staff in D.C. can handle your Department of State and legalization requests quickly.

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!
