International Notary, Apostille, and Authentication


For individuals and organizations sending documents around the world they may find themselves having to first coordinate for an Apostille or Authentication.  Authentication is a special process where the California Secretary of State certifies the authenticity of a local official and the manner in which that official acted. Many persons getting a document notarized for international agencies will then find themselves needing to send their documents to the California Secretary of State to have it further authenticated so that it may be recognized internationally.

Thanks to The Hague Convention, authentications and Apostille are recognized around the world by many participating countries. As can be imagined, every country handles document processing differently. The term ‘notary’ often has drastic differences from country to country, serving as different capacities and roles entirely. If your document is headed overseas, it is best to contact the foreign agency as to see what exactly they need. If your document requires authentication, apostille, or notary, review this ABCs of Apostille offered by the Hague conference.

SD Signings handles the notarization for documents going over seas often. We deal with international contracts for businesses and foreign adoptions that often require authentications. If you find yourself needing our services, we are glad to help with the process. We cannot provide legal advice concerning the documents or their processing. We are not attorneys.
