California Apostille Birth Certificate

Do you need an Apostille for your California Birth Certificate?  The first step is to make sure you have an original birth certificate issued by the County Recorder's office the person was born in.

For example: If your child was born in Los Angeles County, you will need to contact the Los Angeles County Recorder's office to request an original Birth Certificate.  Once you have received this document, you can then send it to for processing.  You can visit our site to download the California Apostille Order Form.

Obtaining a California Birth Certificate Apostille is simple when you work with a professional.  If you don't have the original in hand, you will need to request the document.  The fastest way to order the birth certificate is to visit this website: http://www.vitalchek.com/vital-records/california

But before you can even apply for the original birth certificate, you will need to print out and take the document to a local notary.  Once notarized, you can then request for an original to be mailed to your location.  Processing times can vary depending on how you request the California Birth Certificate.  My advice is to contact the county the person was born in.

An Apostille for Birth Certificate in California is important if this document is to be send to another country which is a member of the Apostille Convention.

If you live in Los Angeles, we have special services to make ordering your birth certificate and Apostille easy.  We can schedule to have a Los Angeles notary meet you at your location to help you fill out and notarize your document.  Once your document has been completed, you can overnight the document to our office for next day processing with the Secretary of State.
