New York Apostille

Do you need an apostille for New York?

New York is one of a handful of States that still requires documents to be processed through the County Clerk before the State will attach the apostille.  This two step process is required for County issued documents.  For example, birth certificates, marriage certificates, divorce decrees issued by the Court, death certificates, local Police background checks, notarized documents, and more.

But, some documents only require one step.  For example, documents issued by the State office.  Documents originating from NYC ManhattanBrooklynStaten IslandQueensBronx require two steps to complete.  Because our office is located in NYC we can travel to the County Clerk and the State office at no additional cost.  For documents issued outside of NYC (Example: Long Island: Suffolk County or Nassau County) then our staff will need to drive to the County Clerk in order to authenticate your documents.  Because New York has 62 counties, documents receive outside of NYC or Long Island can take up more time to complete.

Our processing time for documents originating from NYC is 1-2 business days and 2-3 business days for documents originating from Long Island.  In order to determine how long your documents will take and the cost, we welcome you to either chat with our representative on our website or call our NYC office at 1-646-779-2989 or toll free 1-888-810-4054.
