Tax Office & Associates™ provides Apostille services through its wholly owned subsidiary, Legacy Notary Services™.  Our office will take care of all of the details to authenticate your documents for foreign use.

An Apostille is a certificate that authenticates the signature of a public official on a document for use in another country.  The California Secretary of State provides an Apostille to authenticate California public officials' signatures on documents to be used outside the United States of America.  

An Apostille certifies:

  • the authenticity of the signature of the public official who signed the document,
  • the capacity in which that public official acted, and
  • when appropriate, the identity of the seal or stamp which the document bears, e.g. a notary public seal.

The Apostille does not validate the contents of the document.

Apostilles for Death Certificates – Death Certificates submitted to the California Secretary of State’s office for an apostille will be processed immediately upon receipt and returned via FedEx once complete.

Apostille Service Fees:

  • Apostille processing time from California Secretary of State Office usually takes 7 to 10 business days.
  • First document = $150
  • Each additional document = $90
