Apostille a Notarized Copy of Your Original Document (Copy Certification)

A California Copy Certification by Document Custodian is a document attached to a color copy of your original document swearing that the copy is a copy of the original.  The wording on a copy certification form is the equivalent of a Jurat statement (sworn statement).  Basically, the holder of the document makes a copy and swears the copy is a copy of the original in his/her possession.  The California Copy Certification form is then filled-out by the notary and attached to the copy.

Common documents we can copy certify are:
California Driver License
U.S. Passport & Foreign Passport
Power of Attorney
Diplomas
Transcripts
DMV records
Bylaws
and more!

Documents issued by the County or State cannot be copy certified.  These documents need to be originals or certified originals.  Because of the complexities and strict regulations by the State of California, we recommend that you Contact Us before you meet with a local notary.

Nonetheless, all documents we receive are verified prior to being hand-delivered to the Secretary of State’s office. If we encounter any problems, we will contact you ASAP and provide you step-by-step directions on how to fix the problem.

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