AUTHENTICATIONS: STATE, FEDERAL, EMBASSY

Ask, "what is an apostille" and you will probably get many incorrect answers because the term “apostille” is used rather loosely to reference both apostilles and certifications. The apostille and the certification are similar but different. The term “apostille certification” is also incorrect. The apostille is an authentication but never a certification. Listed below, under the title “Types of California Authentications - Federal Authentications - Embassy Legalization,” are definitions for the California apostille/certification along with definitions for all other types of apostilles, certifications and legalizations utilized to authenticate USA outbound documents for presentation in foreign countries.

The California Apostille (Apostille Stamp) is an authentication issued by the California Secretary of State for non-federal documents, certifying the signature(s) of documents destined for countries belonging the Hague Convention. Only the signature of a California Notary Public and the following California officers and their deputies may be apostilled in the State of California: County Clerk or Recorder, Court Administrator of the Superior Court, Officers whose authority is not limited to any particular county, Executive Clerks of the Superior Court, Executive Officers of the Superior Court. (The Apostille process for other states follow similar guidelines. You may call us for additional information.)

The California Certification carries the same power and bears the same signature requirements as does the California Apostille but is applicable only to documents destined for a country that does not belong to the Hague Convention. Generally speaking, this type of authentication usually requires additional legalization steps before the document may be presented in the country of destination.

The U.S. Department of State Apostille is an authentication issued by the U.S. Dept. Of State for federal documents signed by a federal official with the proper elements that are destined for Hague Convention countries. State issued documents can not receive this authentication.

The U.S. Department of State Certification authenticates the signature of the Secretary of State in which the doc was executed or the signatures of federal agency docs and courts docs executed by the District of Colombia which contain the proper elements. This type of authentication  is usually required for docs destined for Non-Hague Convention countries.

The Clerk of the Court Apostille certifies documents of a Federal Court of the U.S. as authentic for presentation in foreign countries. It is issued by the respective federal Clerk of the Court. This type of Apostille is applicable only to Federal Court Documents.

The Clerk of the Court Apostille certifies documents of a Federal Court of the U.S. as authentic for presentation in foreign countries. It is issued by the respective federal Clerk of the Court. This type of Apostille is applicable only to Federal Court Documents.

Embassy/Consulate Legalizations are legalizations(authentications) that are ususally required by Non-Hague Convention Countries. In most cases the respective Embassy or Consulate attaches their own authentication to the document after the document has been authenticated by the U.S. Department of State. (However, there are Non-Hague Convention countries that require only the state authentication as a mandate for embassy/consular authentications.)
