Illinois Apostille Service
When traveling to another country for anything other than a vacation, you will often need documents authenticated. But how do you know if you need to follow the process of legalization or apostilization of documents?
The Hague Convention of 1961 determined that all member countries will accept the apostille process, while non-members must follow the legalization process.
Don’t worry if you are unsure which process you need to follow; we know which countries require which authentication.
It is not easy for an individual to apostille a document. In fact, the process of acquiring an Illinois apostille can be difficult when done on your own. That is why we are here to help you.

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.
Common questions about Apostille and Legalization
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. One Source Process offers standard and expedited apostille and legalization services.
We are capable of obtaining an apostille on documents such as birth certificates, FBI reports, transcripts, marriage certificates, death certificates, FBI background reports, social security letters, company bylaws, powers of attorney agreements, trademarks, diplomas, transcripts, treaties, warrants, extraditions, agreements, certificates of good standing and much more!
Yes! We can apostille a scanned copy of any personal, business, or U.S. State-issued document including vital records such as birth, death, and marriage certificates. It takes minutes to submit a request with us online here. Just upload a clear, color scan of the document you’d like to have authenticated and we’ll ship back the copy to any domestic or international address with an original apostille attachment. Copies of vital records will receive a New York apostille and all other document copies receive a District of Columbia apostille. Please note that this method, while widely accepted in most cases, does have limitations depending on the authority you’re presenting it to and country of use.
