What is an Apostille or Authentication?
An “apostille” is a form of authentication issued to documents for use in countries that participate in the Hague Convention of 1961. An Apostille is issued as an attachment and will validate the authenticity of your document to the foreign entity you are required to present your document to. Castillo Mobile Notary Services offers standard and expedited apostille services.
Obtaining an Apostille or Embassy Legalization
Getting documents apostilled can be challenging and time-consuming. In most cases, you will need to obtain an original, certified copy of the document you are required to apostille or authenticate. Once obtained, the original document will have to be submitted to the issuing office of authentications, such as the Secretary of State or the US State Department, for apostille or authentication. Embassy legalization may be required if you are getting married in, seeking employment in, or moving to another country. The biggest challenge in the apostille process is overcoming the requirements one must meet before the document is valid for apostille or authentication. Castillo Mobile Notary Services will facilitate the process for you and ensure that state and federal requirements are met to successfully obtain apostille or authentication of your documents.
