California Secretary of State Offices

The California Secretary of State has two offices in California.  One is in Los Angeles and the main office is in Sacramento.  If you send in your documents to the main office in Sacramento, the typical wait time is 45 to 60 days.  You always have the option to do it yourself, but with the complexities and the strict rules on what documents qualify for an Apostille, we recommend mailing in your documents to our office.  Download Order Form Here

The benefits of working with us is that if there is a problem with your documents, you’ll know within a few hours.  If a problem does exist, we’ll tell you exactly what you need to do the fix it.  Another major benefit is that we’ll send you an email when we receive your documents and the UPS tracking number when we ship out your document the same day.  If you’re in a time crunch and don’t want to be left guessing the status of your documents, send them to us and we’ll keep you posted throughout the day.

You can always call us for an update.  Please be sure to mail in your documents using UPS, FedEx or USPS and request a tracking number.  As commissioned notaries, we can also copy certify your documents.  You’ll need to send us the original.  Our staff will make a color copy of your documents and attach a document called a California Copy Certification by Document Custodian.  This helps expedite the Apostille process especially if you are in another country.

The majority of the documents we receive are Birth Certificates, Death Certificates, Power of Attorney (Requires notarization), Divorce Decree (Certified Original), Marriage Certificate, Single Status Affidavit,  Original Diploma and Transcripts, and more!  Click here for a list of documents for California Apostille Service.
