3. Is the birth certificate signed by the county clerk / registrar recorder’s office?
4. Is the birth certificate for a person born in California? (If not, don’t worry! We service all 50 States)

If you answered yes to the four questions above, your document qualifies for an apostille.  Be sure to send us the original and include our order form.

If you answered no the any of the four questions above, your document doesn’t qualify for a California Apostille.   Some reasons why your document may be rejected is:

1. You don’t have a certified original.
2. Your birth certificate is outdated. (White or yellow?)
3. Your birth certificate is signed by a medical doctor.
4. Your birth certificate is from another state or country.
5. Your birth certificate is issued by the Health Services Department.

Birth certificate signed by a medical doctor will first need to be authenticated by the county clerk prior to being sent to our office for processing.  You can learn more by visiting this link:  Birth Certificate Exemplification Authentication for California Apostille. If you or a family member is located in the county of birth, you can simply go to the local county clerk for a certified copy.  An attorney can also assist you.
