Authentication services are some of the most complex and confusing requirements for travel, employment, adoption, marriage, and other interactions with other countries. While in the United States you can request official documentation or get other documents notarized, more is required in order for the authenticity of those documents to be recognized in other countries. The goal of authenticating documents is to show other countries that documents you present without any interaction or involvement from that other country were drawn up properly, have all of details to make it legitimate, and are authentic. This eliminates the need for you to get legal copies of the documents in the United States and then spend extra time in the other country having those documents legalized.
While it is possible to get the proper authentication, legalization, or Apostille for all your documents on your own and submit them to the other country independently, this can be a confusing, frustrating, and exceedingly time-consuming experience. Instead, you can turn to our authentication and legalization services to guide you through the entire process and ensure you handle each step properly.
Some of the benefits of getting in touch with us when you need documents authenticated include:
- Unlike in the United States where verification and legalization of documents is simple and straightforward because you have few options, the needs of different countries varies. How your documents need to be verified varies depending on the country where you intend to travel, seek education or employment, adopt, claim an inheritance, marry, or perform other activities. If you do not understand which form of legalization is necessary, you could waste a tremendous amount of time trying to get the wrong type. Instead, let us explain the difference between Apostille and authentication as well as attestation and legalization so you know which is right for your needs
