California Apostille Mexico

Most of our California Apostille service is for Mexico.  The most common type of document which requires an Apostille for Mexico is Power of Attorney and Affidavit.

A Power of Attorney for Mexico is usually written in English and in Spanish.  English on one side of the document and Spanish on the other side separated by a center divider.  Most Power of Attorney document are generally related to property and drafted by an Attorney in Mexico. 

It's important to note that the secretary of state will attach the California Apostille to the page signed by the notary which includes the California Acknowledgment.  From experience, it's very important to have the signature of the person signing the Power of Attorney, the California Acknowledgment language, the notaries seal and signature all on the same page.

The reason for this is because you want the California Secretary of State to attach the California Apostille to the page where everyone's signature including the notaries seal on one page.  If the notary attaches a California Acknowledgement, then the Secretary of State will attach the Apostille to that page and that's what we don't want to happen.

Apostilles can be complicated. Don’t leave this process to untrained employees or non-professionals who do not fully understand the California Apostille process and the unique requirements of certain countries. Your paperwork could be rejected costing you time and money. Don’t let this happen to you because I've seen it countless times.
