Apostille Service

APOSTILLE or AUTHENTICATION CERTIFICATE is a form of authentication of public official signature on documents to be used outside the United States of America. The country of destination determines whether the authentication is APOSTILLE or AUTHENTICATION CERTIFICATE.  For Documents issued in the State of California signed by Notary Public, State, County officials and their deputies.

APOSTILLE and CERTIFICATIONS only certify to the authenticity of the signature of the official who signed the document, the capacity in which that official acted, and when appropriate, the identity of the seal or stamp which the document bears. The Apostille or Certification does not validate the content of the document.
