Apostille Service

Have you ever needed a document authenticated by the Secretary of State for it to be accepted abroad? If so, Cleveland Notary Lady can help. We offer complete end-to-end solutions, including fast Ohio Apostille Certifications and U.S. Department of State Authentications and Embassy Legalizations. Serving the surrounding cities of Cleveland and Cuyahoga County.


The Authentication process can be complicated and confusing. In most cases, you will need to obtain an original or certified copy of the document you must apostille. Once received, the original document will be delivered to the issuing office of authentications, such as the Ohio Secretary of State or the U.S. Dept of State, for an apostille. We are here to help!


The biggest challenge with the apostille process is the various document certification types and the country in which the document will be presented; each determines the type of certificate needed. In addition, each government agency has specific guidelines and requirements one must meet before the certified document is valid for an apostille or authentication. Cleveland Notary Lady offers a commitment-free document review process to ensure your documents meet the requirements for Apostille or Legalization.

After review of your documents, we will prepare, file, and obtain an apostille certification on all documents on your behalf. Then, all you need to do is give us your original documents, pay for services, and we will take care of the rest.
