Arkansas Apostille Service
There are many instances when you may need an Arkansas apostille for your documents… from taking a new job overseas to getting married in another country. No matter the reason, you will need to have your papers certified as a true copy of the original.
An apostille is a universally accepted form of authentication of public documents so they can be recognized by certain foreign countries.
An apostille is used between countries that are members of the Hague Convention of 1961 and verifies the authenticity of the document’s signatures and seals. For the non-member countries, your paperwork must be authenticated through the embassy legalization process.

Obtaining an Arkansas Apostille
The document to be apostilled and your destination country determines which authentication process to follow.
You begin with either the original document or a certified copy
Once you have those, then the papers are brought to the issuing Secretary of State or the U.S. Department of State, located in Washington D.C.
If your documents require legalization instead of an apostille, the papers then need to be submitted to the Embassy or Consulate
While there may not be a lot of steps, there are many instances when different steps are followed. For example:
A driver’s license is a state-issued document and would go through the Secretary of State’s office, but FBI reports are federal documents and need to be authenticated through the U.S. Department of State
China requires you to legalize documents through the Embassy or Consulate, but Hong Kong requires you to apostille your paperwork
It’s all the nuances that make the authentication process difficult.

I highly recommend One Source Process for all of your document legalization needs. I will recommend them to my colleagues, friends, and incoming employees for overseas employment. They tackled two complex problems for me with ease. They communicated well and addressed all my concerns in a prompt manner through email and phone calls. If you ever need document legalization services, call no one else, I won’t.
We have used a few different process servers and no one has provided the level of customer service that One Source Process has. They are very reliable and they communicate every step of the way. Alex and Brandon have been a huge help and they always take their time to understand our needs. We look forward to working with One Source Process for a long time
Professional and efficient - Having not been through the Apostille Service previously, we were guided and taught what we were doing by extremely professional and courteous individuals. We couldn't be more pleased at the efficiency and the speed at which they were able to get the job done. The final product was accepted by the bank and the beneficiaries of the estate received their funds, everyone was happy. Thank you, One Source Process, Inc.
