If you reside outside Los Angeles or anywhere in California, you can mail us your original marriage license for processing with the California secretary of state (Apostille) located in Los Angeles.
First, we need to make sure your California Marriage License is eligible for an Apostille. Is your Marriage Certificate an original with a blue / pink color? If not, you’ll need to request an original be mailed to you or take your current original to the County Clerk / Recorder/Registrar’s office for certification.
You do not automatically receive a certified copy when you get married. You must request and pay for a certified copy from the local registrar of marriages (County Recorder). For further information, please contact the County Clerk or Recorder’s Office near you.
Some countries will only recognize your California Marriage Certificate or other type of official document if it’s authenticated by the Secretary of State of which the document was issued. This authentication can be an Apostille or a Certification. The country of destination will determine whether they require an Apostille or Certification. Please call us with any questions you may have.
