I want to know the step-by-step process of apostille California. Do any of you know?March 24, 2023 at 3:21 pm #61578PhidippidesKeymaster
Here is what the AI had to say:
- Determine which document needs an apostille. An apostille is a certification that authenticates the signature of a public official on a document. Some documents that may need an apostille include birth certificates, marriage certificates, diplomas, and transcripts.
- Obtain a certified copy of the document. The document must be an original or a certified copy, which means a copy that has been verified by the issuing agency or a notary public.
- Complete any necessary translations. If the document is not in English, you will need to have it translated by a professional translator.
- Submit the document to the California Secretary of State’s office. You can submit the document in person or by mail. If you submit it by mail, be sure to include a self-addressed stamped envelope for the return of the apostilled document.
- Pay the required fee. The fee for an apostille in California is currently $26 per document.
- Wait for the apostille to be issued. The processing time for an apostille in California can vary depending on the volume of requests received, but it typically takes around 7-10 business days.
- Receive the apostilled document. If you submitted the document in person, you can pick it up at the Secretary of State’s office. If you submitted it by mail, it will be sent back to you in the self-addressed stamped envelope you provided.
That’s it! Once you have the apostille, the document is considered valid for use in any country that is a member of the Hague Convention.
