Below are the steps for getting a document apostilled:
Get your document: this is necessary if you don’t already have the document that you need apostilled. Oftentimes you’ll get it from your state’s vital records office. Of course, that excludes academic documents which are issued by the institution where you studied.
Get the document notarized: you won’t get an apostille for a document that hasn’t been notarized. Get in touch with us today for help on getting your essential documents notarized.
If necessary, get the document certified by a court clerk: this is typically necessary when obtaining electronic certificates and documents.
If necessary, get the document certified by the secretary of state: documents like birth certificates, death certificates, marriage certificates, divorce decrees, and probate wills all need the certification of a secretary of state.
Get your document apostilled: at this point you can have your document authenticated. You will receive an apostille to go with it.
And that’s where Lodi Mobile Notary comes in. Alongside notarizing documents, we also get them
authenticated by the Secretary of State on your behalf.
