Before an Apostille is issued by the State of IL, the employee checks the document needing the apostille, thoroughly, making sure the notary has signed and
notarized the document correctly. We can not stress this enough, but the notarization MUST BE 100% CORRECT.  If there are ANY notary errors, this will result in
your apostille application being automatically rejected by the State.

We do not issue refunds once an Apostille or Certificate of Authenticity applications have been submitted, or rejected that were NOT notarized by us or
rejected for some other reason by the State. We will always provide the State Rejection Letter for our clients.

Some of the reasons why APOSTILLES get rejected by the ILLINOIS SECRETARY OF STATE'S OFFICE CAN BE:

    • Incorrect fees.
    • Lack of notarization or certification by the proper  official.
    • Name of country where the document will be used not  specified.
    • Rubber stamp seal has incorrect commission date of  the notary.
    • Notary signature or stamp does not match the way the notary has been appointed.

APOSTILLE SERVICES
An Apostille certifies the validity of an Illinois notary public, county clerk, circuit clerk or local registrar. This special certification is accepted by certain foreign
countries as proof that specific documents are "official". Only countries who are members of the
HAGUE CONVENTION can receive a state issued Apostille.
Other countries who are not members, will receive a Certificate of Authority. Certificates are similar to the Apostille in that the same information and a small fee
is required as when submitting an application for an Apostille.

The difference between Certificate of Authority and an Apostille, are Certificates are applied to documents that are to be used in countries that are not
members of the Hague Apostille Convention and do not have a seal on the top of the documents.
