Washington Apostille Service
When you need to apostille a document for traveling abroad, you can either work on your own to obtain one, or work with us and let us handle the red tape for you.
An apostille authentication is a certification of the signatures and seals on a document. Papers can either be apostilled or legalized, depending on your destination country.
Countries that are members of the Hague Convention of 1961 established a uniform acceptance of authenticity called an apostille. All non-member countries only accept documents that have been legalized according to their standards.
But don’t worry if you are unsure if your papers are required to be apostilled or legalized, we have worked with just about every country and will properly authenticate 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!
