Find the apostille for your documents in any state in the US where you are located.
Our United States Apostille service is available to clients throughout the country. For a document to be valid in another Hague Convention member country, it must be certified in the state you live in. Apostille International serves all 50 states, so we can take care of the entire process no matter where in the U.S. you live.
The legalization of documents pertains to birth certificates, death certificates, marriage licenses, corporate documents, federal documents, powers of attorney, etc. A document must be certified by the clerk of court in the county where the authority that notarized it is commissioned. It must then only be certified by the secretary of state in the state the document was notarized.
Any document must be issued or certified by an officer (or competent authority) recognized by the issuing authority of the Apostille. Only then will it be eligible for legalization in another country.
These are the 50 states within the U.S. territory in which we offer our services of apostille and legalization of documents.

Once a state-issued document has an Apostille, it is recognized by a Hague member country. It does not require additional certification by the U.S. Department of State. Nor does it need to be legalized by an overseas U.S. embassy or consulate. However, the U.S. Department of State must provide an authentication certificate for state-issued documents intended for use in non-Hague-Convention countries.
In general, any document issued in the U.S. must be notarized in the state of origin. This differs in other countries. For example, in the Netherlands, courts can directly certify municipal civil status documents with an Apostille.
However, the process isn’t the same in every U.S. state. In some locations, an intermediate certification may be required in the document’s original country. Such is the case in New York City, where the Office of Vital Records issues birth certificates and other important documents.
In order for the New York Secretary of State to recognize a document, the document has to be taken to the City Clerk’s office, where they will certify the signature. Then the document becomes eligible for Apostille certification. At Apostille International, we can help you get an apostille from any of the 50 states.
