What is a California Apostille

Sample California ApostilleMore than half of the people who call me for California Apostille service really don’t know the true purpose of an Apostille.  The California Secretary of State issues an Apostille and/or Certification for your California documents (birth, marriage, death, divorce, background check, power of attorney, affidavit, etc…) being sent to another country.  If the country is a member of the Apostille Convention, then the document will receive an Apostille.  If not, then it will receive a Certification.

An Apostille or certification basically authenticates the signature of the official who signed the document.  The California Secretary of State provides authentication of public official signatures on documents to be used outside the United States of America.

Apostilles 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 contents of the document.
