Maryland 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 will have your documents properly authenticated and quickly returned to you.
We Specialize in Maryland Apostille Service
Let One Source Process apostille your federal or state documents including: birth certificate, marriage certificate, diploma, transcripts, FBI report, power of attorney, & much more!
Specific steps must be taken, and in the correct order, to have your papers successfully apostilled or legalized.
You must first obtain the original or certified copy of the document. Next, depending on your documents, you may need to bring them to the County Clerk’s office in the originating county.
After that, the papers are submitted to the Maryland Department of State for the Apostille. If needed, you may also need to send all of the paperwork to the U.S. Department of State for certification.
If your destination country requires legalization instead of an apostille, the next step is to have all documents submitted to the United States Department of State in Washington, D.C. Then, the final step is to have everything sent to the Embassy or Consulate

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. If you want more information regarding our photocopy Apostille process, please visit our page here.
