Authentications: Apostille or Certification


We offer authentication of public official signatures on documents to be used outside the United States of America from the California Secretary of State’s office.

The country of destination determines whether the authentication is an Apostille or Certification.

The California Secretary of State only authenticates signatures on documents issued in the State of California signed by a notary public or the public officials and their deputies and must have a current date.

Here are a few examples of documents submitted for signature authentication:
  • Birth Certificates 
  • Bylaws 
  • Certificates of Non-Marital Status 
  • Corporate documents such as articles, mergers, amendments, etc. 
  • Deeds of Assignment 
  • Marriage Licenses 
  • Papers for adoption purposes 
  • Powers of Attorney 
  • School records such as diplomas, transcripts, letters relating to degrees, etc. 
  • References and Job Certification 
  • Trademarks
You, our client must identify the country of destination before we submit the documents to the Secretary of State.
