#1 - In-Person Meeting with Apostille Specialist. 

All of our Apostille specialist do nothing but Apostille legal docs full-time as professionals. (DON'T TRUST a random P.O Box/Virtual address in Austin TX? Me either!!) Our specialist will meet with you in-person at our office or even your location in Houston and help you understand all the many details of your situation!

They will answer all your questions about your specific situation. We will save you from lost mail, lost time, legal worries, and official-rejections. Your Apostille specialist will personally consult you and look over all your papers, with you, so that you avoid costly rejections from the U.S States or the foreign nation. Your time and important projects matter. If you're getting married in a foreign country the last thing you want is a problem with your paperwork.

Only for our Gold premium clients. You get a "No-Rejection Guarantee" for your documents that are looked over by our Apostille specialist. We make sure that your document(s) won't get rejected and if your document is rejected, by the state, then we help you understand and fix the problem and redo your Apostille submission at no additional cost to you (some exemptions from guarantee apply). To qualify for Gold Guarantee all documents submitted should be authentic, correctly dated, legal and completely true in all their representations and claims, and not stolen.

Why do we offer Silver Option?
Our firm has been unprofessionally-copied by so many mom and pop places in Austin and elsewhere that we've had to include this base service as a response to their cheap mail-only service offering.
But it can be a good fit for some customers looking to simply
save money and take the big-risk of mailing important docs.

(FAQ) Frequently Asked Questions:
 

What is an Apostille? (pronounced APO-STEEL) 
The Apostille seal authentication is an international authority that is sealed with your document which allows the receiving nation/country to be assured that the document itself has went thru a process of validation, legalization, notarization and or authentication. The Apostille is not a notary. The Apostille Seal created by the international treaty of the Hague Convention on private law on October 5th, 1961 which specifies the rules for Apostille. In working terms the Apostille is used to create trust and surety between foreign government divisions concerning public documents and allows them to have some assurance that the document they are receiving is valid, legal and authentic.

have to say about their experience with us. HTMN Google Business Page.


What is the Cost of Gold Premium Service? (See Apostille Price)
There are 5 main factors that determine our Gold Apostille price estimates.
The government entities legally involved and their filing fees, the time it takes our experts
to work on your file, and the work that is required all play a role in how much we charge up front.

 

The Price-Factors for GOLD PREMIUM SERVICE:

  • 1. What type of document you need Apostilled.
    (ex. Power of Attorney/Death Certificate/Diploma/Corporate Document etc..)

  • 2. Which country is the Apostille for?
    (Where is it going? ex. Germany, India etc..)
    Here is a List of Apostille Hague Convention Countries.

    Which government are you addressing and what are their rules.

  • 3. Where do the document originates from?
    (Texas, Louisiana, Kentucky, Florida, Tennessee etc.)

  • 4. How many documents do you have in total?
    (one document vs. four documents)

  • 5. Do you need it back fast?
    Normally it takes the government, at least,
    20-40 business days to process one document.

Rush Options


We offer RUSH SERVICE (Gold Option Customers)
1day, 3day turn arounds Available for most documents (some restrictions apply).

The normal processing time is controlled by two major factors, what type
of document you have and what country is going to and what state it's from.

As an example, a document from the FBI involves more steps and has more rules to follow than a document from Texas state or a power of attorney. Out of state documents always take a little longer than Texas Documents. If your document originates in Texas it can usually be completed quicker than a document from out of state like California or New York. Ask us and we will tell you when to expect your completion.

Average Completion Time
For local TX documents usually complete in 1 week. Silver option customers are processed once a week. If you miss this date on your request week, it will be processed the following week or at the next opportunity (along with Gold Option customers). Processing does not happen on weekends or holidays because governments don't work on weekends. This is not for Federal documents or Consulate/Embassy Legalizations.


Consulate/Embassy Legalization
$275 per Legalization plus consulate filing fees

We work with the The U.S Department of State in Washington D.C, and
All foreign consulates and embassy offices for document legalization (located in the USA) .
Our relationships and experience get your documents done as fast as possible with no time wasting errors or road blocks. Trying to do legal document work on your own can cost you extra time and costly errors. Don't end up on the wrong side of a government list. Have professionals like us do the right things for you.
