All member countries accept the apostille to prove the document is not forged. Non-member countries require all documents to go through their embassy to authenticate the document’s validity.

Steps to Apostille California Criminal History Background Check
Let’s say you have been hired to work in another country, and the new company requires you to get a background check. You may also be asked to apostille an FBI background check. Once you receive the federal background check, you will need to send all paperwork to the US Department of State in Washington, DC, for the apostille.
If you live in California, the steps to get the state background check are:
- Contact a private fingerprinting company service that can digitally scan your fingerprints
- Ask the company to forward your prints to the California Department of Justice and request a state background check
- Ask for the results to be accompanied by a stamped letter signed by the Attorney General of California
- Send all the signed background checks to the California Secretary of State and request the apostille
Instead of trying to obtain both federal and state apostilles on your own, sending both background check results and signed documents to One Source Process is easier. We will work with state and federal governments to acquire your apostille.
