Documents issued from the State of California require to be Apostilled from the California Secretary of State. Also, documents notarized within the State of California need to be Apostilled from the California Secretary of State. There are no exceptions to the rule!!!
For example, if a Hague Apostille Country is requesting an Apostille on your California Birth Certificate, you can only obtain the Apostille from the California Secretary of State’s office. Some online websites will attempt to circumvent the Apostille process by notarizing an affidavit and obtaining an Apostille from a different State ( For Example: New York). They will ask you to scan or upload a copy of your original document and they will complete an affidavit with a New York Apostille on a California Document.
In order to prevent rejection of your documents or having your documents invalidated in the future by the receiving country, it’s important to complete your documents correctly the first time.
Unlike some of our competitors who trick clients into believing their acts are legitimate, we believe that the best policy is to be honest and complete your documents correctly with the State that issued the documents or the State the documents where notarized in.
California Documents = California Apostille
New York Documents = New York Apostille

Florida Documents = Florida Apostille
There are no exceptions to the rule!!!
