Do you need California Apostille Services?
In the State of California, we have offices in San Francisco and Los Angeles. Our office in San Francisco is located in the Downtown area and our office in Los Angeles is located in the Burbank area. Documents issued from the State of California can be apostilled through any one of our two California offices.
The processing time at our San Francisco office is the next business day and the same-day at our Los Angeles office. We also provide FedEx return shipping at no additional cost to any address in the United States.
The State of California has 58 distinct Counties with each County issuing birth certificates, marriage certificates, death certificates, and single status affidavits. The Superior Court of the County can issue your divorce decree and other legal documents. If your documents require notarization, you can meet with any notary in California and have your documents notarized. Keep in mind a notarized document is not the same as an apostille. An apostille is issued by the California Secretary of State.
The first step is to contact our office so we can review your documents. It’s important to have your documents available as we may ask questions regarding the signer of the document and the department the document has been issued from. Though we will do our best to verify your documents over the phone, only the Secretary of State will make the final decision. We recommend that you mail in the document you currently have for authentication.
Our staff is ready to assist you Monday – Friday from 8am to 7pm to answer your questions. We recommend that you first contact our office so we can review your documents before you mail them in or drop them office.
Obtaining a California apostille 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.
