Apostille Service

Quick Retrieval of Georgia Apostille Certificates

What is an Apostille?

If you need to present personal or business documents to Hague countries outside the United States, they will need to be apostilled.  An apostille is a one-page document that is issued by an authority on the state or federal level.  Apostilles are used only to certify the authenticity of a signature and the competence of the person who has signed the document, and, where appropriate, the identity of the seal or stamp which the document bears. The apostille attestation does not certify the content of the document for which it is issued.

Our Georgia Apostille Service

Atlanta Apostille will help you with all your Georgia apostille needs.  Getting a Georgia apostille can be a time-consuming and complicated process.  Often, it requires retrieving apostille stamps from several different state and/or federal government agencies, such as Georgia Vital Records, GA Superior Court, or the US State Department. Atlanta Apostille can spare you the hassle of doing this yourself. We will carry out all the necessary research, complete all forms, and retrieve the appropriate apostille certificates.  We can retrieve birth certificates, marriage certificates, death certificates, as well as incorporation documents from the Secretary of State.  Our offices are located in close proximity to the state and federal departments and consulates in Atlanta, and to the U.S. State Department and embassies in Washington, DC, thus ensuring a timely retrieval process of apostilles in Georgia, and other state’s apostilles for that matter.   We can also translate your documents if needed.

You can bring your document to our office, mail or overnight them, or we can pick it up if you’re located in the Atlanta area.  We have same-day, rush service for urgent requests.
