Apostille vs Authentication?
An Apostille is a form of certification issued by the Secretary of State to documents for use in countries that participate in the Hague Convention of 1961. Please see the list of participating countries here. An Authentication is also a form of certification but it is issued by the U.S. State Department and is intended for a) documents for use in countries that do NOT participate in the Hague Convention of 1961 and/or b) for federal documents such as FBI Reports and FBI Background Checks. To request an FBI background check authentication or service for another federal document, please visit us here.
Choosing us to be your FBI apostille service means we act on your behalf to obtain these records for you. Because these documents must be requested in-person or through the mail at a federal office, our background check apostille service can save you a considerable amount of time and money when compared to going through the process yourself.
Having an apostille for FBI background checks better ensures you receive the documents you request in-hand when you need them without delay or unnecessary expense. This enables you to fulfill the requirements for international travel, relocating to a foreign country, accepting a job overseas, marrying a foreign national and a variety of other situations.

Testimonials from real clients
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.
