Affidavit Apostille and Authentication Service
An affidavit is a legal promise or statement of fact made voluntarily by an affiant or deponent under an oath or affirmation. To have legal standing, the document must be signed by the affiant in the presence of a notary public or commissioner of oaths.
Advanced Mobile Notary’s team of California-State-commissioned notaries public knows how to navigate the complexities and pitfalls involved in the affidavit apostille and authentication processes. We ensure that your document is properly legalized and returned to you quickly and securely.
The notarial certificate and the California apostille will be in English, but your document to receive certification by the California Secretary of State. Not having to translate a document can save you time and money. Please ensure a translation is not required by the receiving party. Also note that the US State Department requires English translations if federal authentication is required.
