What is an authentication?
Sometimes when a document is notarized and then sent to another state or country, the Notary's seal and signature must be authenticated or "proven" to be genuine, which is a process called 'Authentication".    The country of destination determines whether the authentication is an Apostille or Certification. Notary Authenticating Certificates can be issued by the County Clerk where the Notary's oath and bond are on file.  This is normally done when a document is staying in the United States.   The Secretary of State provides authentication of public official signatures on documents to be used outside the United States of America.  

How do I get an Apostille?
To obtain an Apostille, send your notarized document or certified copy from the county clerk or superior court, a cover letter telling the Secretaru of State what country the document will be used in and a self-addressed envelope and a $20.00 fee per authentication.   Please refer to Authentications: Apostille or Certification for additional information.
