US Legalization recommends corporations to certify documents from local Secretary of State before requesting our expedited services. Some foreign embassies and consulates require documents to be certified by local state office, otherwise the document will be rejected. For that reason, It is more time saving and cost effective to obtain State certification by yourself and then use our service to expedite the remaining steps.

Additionally, individuals are encouraged to use our guide to state certification for personal documents. US Legalization provides this comprehensive guide to apostille and certification from local secretary of state offices in all 50 states. It includes all information pertaining to document certification such as address, telephone number, fee, processing time and special requirements.

Note: US Legalization offers this guide to help individuals. Please, if you have any questions pertaining to state certification, please call the state office directly and Not our office. Thank you for understanding.
