California Apostille and Notary Service

Certain documents require notarization by a California notary prior to becoming eligible for a California Apostille.  These documents are: Power of Attorney, Affidavit, Copy of Driver License, Copy of Passport, Copy of Diploma, and more!

The California Secretary of State authenticates signatures only on documents issued in the State of California signed by a notary public or the following public officials and their deputies:

  • County Clerks, Registrar-Recorder
  • Court Administrators of the Superior Court
  • Executive Clerks of the Superior Court
  • Officers whose authority is not limited to any particular county
  • Executive Officers of the Superior Court
  • Judges of the Superior Court
  • State Officials

Another words, if you need an Apostille for your documents and it’s not signed by a California public official, you can meet with a local California notary who will notarize your signature on the documents.  It’s extremely important that your notary notarizes the documents correctly or the documents will be rejected either by the California Secretary of State or the destination country.  If you are located in Los Angeles County, we provide complimentary Los Angeles mobile notary service at no extra fee (Restrictions apply – Call for details).

Before you hire a local California notary, it’s important we speak with the notary to ensure that they do their job correctly in order to avoid any errors.  99.9% of notaries are unaware on how to complete documents properly for international use.

Our California Apostille office is located minutes away from the Secretary of State in Downtown Los Angeles. With over seven years of experience, you can feel comfortable knowing we’ll get the job done right the first time.

Apostilles can be complicated. Don’t leave this process to untrained employees or non-professionals who do not fully understand the California 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!
