Over the past 5 years, I have worked with a good number of companies that provide apostille and notary services. One Source Process is clearly in a ‘class of their own’. They are very responsive, and timely with respect to providing the documents-and truly a pleasure to work with! There service is absolutely the very best that I have ever received! I can highly recommend them with confidence-and without reservation!” Don Pelletier, Broker & Real Estate Consultant ‒ The Don Pelletier Group, Inc
California Apostille Service
When presenting your paperwork to another country, you need a form of authentication that verifies the attached signatures and seals. There are two types of validation:
- Have your document apostilled
- Have your document legalized by the Embassy/Consulate
The Hague Convention of 1961 established a uniform process of confirming the authenticity of documents. Countries belonging to this convention accept papers that are apostilled, while non-member countries only accept legalized documents that are processed through the Embassy or Consulate. Don’t worry if you are unsure which verification your destination country requires, we are able to apostille a document properly and return it quickly to you.

Frequently Asked Questions About Apostilization of Documents in California
Q: Does an apostille in California certify the authenticity of the information in the document?
A: When a document is apostilled in California, the office of authentications certifies that the person who signed the document on behalf of the state had the authority to do so, and certifies the authenticity of the signature. The information contained in the document is not verified or confirmed during the apostille process.
Q: Can I obtain a California apostille on a document issued in another state?
A: No. The state of California will only apostille documents issued in California, issued by an official department of the state — signed by a California notary, state Registrar or probate judge. Documents issued by another state must be apostilled in the issuing state.
Similarly, federal documents issued in California can be apostilled, but the apostille must be obtained through the U.S. State Department rather than through California. One Source Process can help you obtain apostilles for documents issued across the U.S., as well as documents issued by the federal government.
Q: How do I obtain an original or certified copy if I need to apostille a document in California?
A: If you do not have an original or certified copy of the document you need apostilled, you can obtain it by contacting the Town Clerk or the Vital Records Unit of the California Department of Health.
Q: Will my California-apostilled documents be accepted everywhere?
A: Your California-apostilled document should be accepted in any of the countries in the Hague Convention. If you require a document authenticated for a non-Hague Convention country, you will need an embassy legalization/certification rather than an apostille. One Source Process can help you determine what type of authentication you need and help you obtain the necessary apostille or certification.
Q: I need my apostilled document fast. Does One Source Process offer expedited apostille services for California documents?
A: Yes! We understand that sometimes, people need their apostilled documents quickly. We offer rush turnaround services (typically within one to three business days) or same-day services.

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.
