The Apostille Process

Navigating the Apostille process can be complex, but at Universal LiveScan Fingerprinting, we simplify it for you. Here's a step-by-step breakdown of how we handle the Apostille process:

  • Document Evaluation: We start by evaluating your document to determine if it's eligible for an Apostille. This includes verifying its origin and ensuring it's a certified copy or an original document.
  • Certification Verification: If your document is from a government office, school, or court, we ensure that it has the necessary certification or seal required for the Apostille process.
  • Translation Services (if needed): We provide certified translation services for documents in a foreign language to ensure compliance with Apostille standards.
  • Submission to the Appropriate Authority: We submit your document to the state or federal authority responsible for issuing Apostilles. This could be the Secretary of State, the U.S. Department of State, or another designated office, depending on the document type.
  • Verification and Processing: The authority verifies the document and its certification. Once verified, they attach the Apostille certificate to your document.
  • Return of Apostilled Document: After the Apostille is attached, we return the document to you, ready for international use.
  • Guidance on International Use: We offer guidance on how to present your Apostilled document in the destination country, ensuring it meets any specific requirements they might have.

At Universal LiveScan Fingerprinting, we strive to make the Apostille process as straightforward and stress-free as possible. Our expertise and attention to detail ensure that your documents are accurately processed and returned to you in a timely manner, ready for global recognition.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is an Apostille?

An Apostille is a form of certification set out by the Hague Convention, used to authenticate documents for international use. It certifies the authenticity of the signature on the document, the capacity in which the person signing the document acted, and the identity of any stamp or seal attached to the document.

Why do I need an Apostille?

An Apostille is required when you need to use certain documents in a foreign country that is a member of the Hague Apostille Convention. It's typically needed for documents like birth certificates, marriage certificates, academic diplomas, and business documents.

How long does it take to get a document Apostilled?

The processing time varies depending on the nature of the document and the current workload. Typically, it can take anywhere from a few days to a couple of weeks. Universal LiveScan Fingerprinting strives to provide efficient and timely service.

Do I need to present the original document for Apostille?

Yes, Apostilles are attached to original documents or certified copies. Photocopies without an official stamp or certification cannot be Apostilled.

Can I get an Apostille for a document in a foreign language?

Yes, but it might require a certified translation. The Apostille itself will be in English, verifying the authenticity of the document regardless of its language.


Is there an expiration date for an Apostille?

Generally, Apostilles do not expire once issued. However, some receiving authorities may have specific requirements regarding the age of the Apostille. It's best to verify with the authority where the document will be used.
