Has the California DMV requested to have your birth certificate apostilled or certified by the State of California?
During the past several weeks, we have received dozens of requests to have foreign documents certified by the California Secretary of State’s office. Depending on the destination country, your document will either receive an Apostille or a certificate. If your country is a member of the Hague Apostille Convention, then you will receive an Apostille. If your country is not a member, then your document will receive a certificate.

Please follow the 2 simple steps here:
Step 1: If your document is in another language other than English, you must have it translated to English. You can find a certified translator by visiting the American Translators Association website located here: https://www.atanet.org/ or you can find a translator by searching the internet. Please keep in mind your document must be translated and notarized in California.
Note: If your certificate is already in English, go ahead and meet with a local notary who will make a color copy of your certificate and attach a California Copy Certification by Document Custodian. All notaries who are members of the National Notary Association (NNA) will have this form available and can also contact the NNA to obtain it. You can also Contact Us and request that we email you this form.
Step 2: Mail the notarized document including our order form and credit card authorization form to our office for processing. Please, do not mail-in the original birth certificate.
It’s that simple!
Your document will be processed the same-day and returned to you the next business morning by UPS or FedEx.
