Do you need a California Apostille on your California Criminal History Background Check?
If you are planning to move, start a new job, get married, adopt, obtain dual citizenship, or continue education in another country, you will be required to obtain an apostille on your California Criminal History Background Check. In most cases, you will also be asked to obtain an apostille on your FBI Background check too. More information here: FBI Apostille
During the past few months, we have noticed many countries who are not members of the Hague Apostille Convention request individuals to obtain their background check from the State and Federal Government. It’s important to know what documents are being requested in order to avoid any delays.
The first step is to contact the California Department of Justice for step-by-step instructions. You have the right to request a copy of your California background check. To get started, visit this link: http://oag.ca.gov/fingerprints . A local LiveScan operator will scan your fingerprints and submit them digitally to the California Department of Justice. In about a few days, you will receive your results by mail.
Once you receive your results, the second step it to contact Anthony Molina, Criminal Identification Specialist I, you will issue you a signed letter (see below).
This letter is necessary in order for us to obtain a California Apostille. If you have received a letter signed by Cindy Santos, you will need to call the California Department of Justice and request a letter signed by Anthony Molina.
