LEGALIZATION DEFINITIONS FOR:
STATE - FEDERAL - EMBASSY/CONSULATES
At the state level the word "apostille" now can mean one of two things:
- The state's legalization of a properly prepared document to be presented in a foreign country belonging to the Hague Convention of October 1961.
- The state's legalization of any properly prepared document to be presented in any foreign country, whether or not it belongs to the Hague Convention of October 1961.
Several states issue a "Legalization" under the name "Apostille" only for documents destined to be presented in Hague Convention countries and a "Certification" or "Authentication" for Non-Hague Convention countries. This means that in some states, such as California, there is only the Apostille. Listed below, under the title “Types of California Authentications - Federal Authentications - Embassy Legalization,” are definitions for the California Apostille along with definitions for all other types of apostilles, authentications, certifications that are issued to legalize USA outbound documents for presentation in foreign countries.
The California Apostille (Apostille Stamp) is a legalization issued by the California Secretary of State for non-federal documents, certifying the signature(s) of documents destined for any foreign country. 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 U.S. Department of State Apostille is a legalization 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 type of legalization.
The U.S. Department of State Authentication certifies 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 legalization 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.
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 legalization to the document after the document has been legalized by the U.S. Department of State. (However, there are Non-Hague Convention countries that require only the state legalization as a mandate for issuing their respective embassy/consular legalization.)
