In the State of California, a birth certificate can be apostilled if it has been issued by the County Clerk or the California State Registrar.  If the birth certificate has been issued by the County Health Services Department and signed by a Medical Doctor, the document will need further authentication by the County Clerk’s office.

We can apostille all birth certificates issued from all 58 Counties in California.  Documents issued by the County Health Services Department will require County Clerk authentication before the State will attach the apostille.

Quick Fact: In the State of California, there can be 118 different birth certificates issued.
