Apostille Services Florida

Are you getting married in another country? Do you need your US birth certificate or marriage license authenticated? Are you looking for a service to ensure your paperwork can be authenticated, certified, and accepted? Then you need to avail the services of an APOSTILLE AGENT.

An Apostille service certifies that a document is acceptable for use in another country. This procedure entails obtaining the necessary paperwork and having it approved by a Secretary of State’s office, then stamping the document with an official seal. Many documents must be authenticated or certified before they can be accepted and used for official purposes in other countries. The apostille authenticates the signature and commission of the signing authority.

Rainbow Notary and Nuptials Wedding Officiants offer fast and reliable apostille services. We make sure that all the paperwork necessary for an important milestone like your marriage certificate or birth certificate is stamped, authorized, and certified to be accepted in the country of your destination wedding or your needs to get a lease or power of attorney or start your residency process.

Things To Know About The

Rainbow Notary Apostille Service

There are a few things to keep in mind when using an apostille service. To begin, make sure that the service is reputable and accredited. Many con artists will try to take advantage of people who require this type of service. Second, be aware of the associated fees. Some companies will charge exorbitant fees, so it’s critical to obtain quotes from multiple apostille services before deciding. Finally, ensure that you understand the requirements of the country in which you will use the document; some countries have particular requirements for apostilles.

Rainbow Notary offers Apostille, Authentication, Consulate/Embassy Legalization, and Translation services for any document used in another country. Here are a few things to remember:

  • We can process official documents from any of the 50 United States and official federal documents from Washington, DC for those who need an American Apostille (Authentication). We can also assist with Embassy Legalization (Consular Legalization) for specific countries.
  • Copy Certifications by a Notary Public is one of our services, and they allow us to process authentications involving the international community.
  • We also offer Certified Translation services in a variety of languages. For Spanish, we have a “Perito Traductor” from Mexico or a “Traductor Jurado” from Spain, both of which are certified by the “Ministerio de Asuntos Exteriores, Unión Europea y Cooperación de España.”
  • We also process the same service for documents that must be Apostilled in Mexico (rather than the United States) for use in another country, including the United States. We can also help with the necessary certifications issued by a Notario Publico in Mexico.

Our Process

Step 1

It all starts with you, our valued customer. Give us a call or drop us an email. Of course, if you have any questions or are unsure what to fill in at any point, we are here to assist you, so all you have to do is contact us!

You will pay for your order and provide us with any additional information or instructions we may require. We can assist you in using our Remote Online Notary Commission to notarize any documents you have. Again, all of this can be accomplished conveniently in one location!

Step 2

After you’ve submitted your information, payment, and any special instructions to us, we get the ball rolling. We have a network of Couriers across the United States in all 50 US State Capitols to insure that your forms aren’t sitting in a mail room somewhere. We have people to walk in to the Secretary of State and sometimes even get same day service. We use FedEx and DHL so that we can get the fastest shipping services to them and then back to you. Our prices include DOMESTIC shipping. International shipping is extra. We understand that waiting is a tricky part for many of our customers, but rest assured that we are doing everything to process your order as quickly as possible.

You can contact us with any questions you may have during this time. We offer same-day service to 7 or more business days, depending on what’s being processed and which country requires the information. Documents required at the United States Department of State are taking several weeks and they do not have the walk in services available at this time.

Step 3

This third step is by far our clients’ favorite. It’s when your order arrives! We will ship your documents overnight to your specified address once they have been fully and accurately processed. You will receive your completed documents, which will be in perfect order and ready for you to deliver to your final destination. Domestic Shipping IS included. International is EXTRA.

It is that easy!
