Please remember the following information prior to sending your documents to our office for processing:
- All your documents must be notarized by a public notary
- Once your documents are notarized they will need to be authenticated by your local courthouse in your state attesting to the fact that the notary seal is authentic and certified by your state.
- You should submit your documents to your Secretary of State to certify the county clerk’s signature.
Once you have completed the above three steps, your documents will be ready to be submitted to the State Department in Washington DC followed by the consulate of your choice for the final step.
Please complete one order form for the entire order of authentication process and clearly indicate how many documents will need the seal of the State Department and whether you would need the seal of another country to be placed on your document.
The cost of the authentication for the State department is $8 per document and the cost of the service is $95 for the first documents, $160 for two documents and $200 for three documents. Please contact our office if you have more than three documents for a special pricing.
