Kentucky Apostille Authentication
When presenting your US paperwork to another country, you need a form of authentication that verifies the signatures and seals of the document. There are two types of validation:
- Obtain an apostille from the Secretary of State or the US Department of State in Washington, DC
- Have your document legalized by the Embassy or Consulate
The Hague Convention of 1961 established a uniform process of confirming the authenticity of documents. Countries belonging to this convention accept the apostille, while non-member countries only accept documents that are legalized through the Embassy or Consulate.
Did you know… The word apostille is French for certification
Don’t worry if you are unsure which verification your destination country requires – or where to get documents apostilled. We will have your paperwork properly authenticated and quickly returned to you.
We can apostille personal documents such as:
- Birth certificate
- Death certificate
- FBI background check
As well as business documents such as:
- Articles of Incorporation
- Business Licenses and Permits
- Hiring information
- FDA Certificate to Foreign Government

- We will review all paperwork for FREE to ensure all information is correct and let you know of any discrepancies. A few items we review are:
- If your documents require a notary signature
- If your document must NOT have a notary signature
- If your destination country requires original documents or if it will accept certified copies.
- When everything is correct, we will send you a payment invoice and timeline for completion. You don’t pay any fees until the documents are error-free and ready to go.
We will work with the correct state offices, federal offices, and if needed, the Embassy or Consulate to apostille or legalize your documents.

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. One Source Process will always advise our apostille services clients of these restrictions when we review your request but does not guarantee that they will be accepted.
