Once CNS obtains your Apostille, the State Seal that is attached CAN NOT BE BROKEN

Before an Apostille is issued, the State employee verifies or authenticates the notarial certificate and notary's name and signature on the

Some of the reasons why APOSTILLES get rejected by the IL 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.
    • School diplomas and transcripts not originally signed and notarized.

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 Apostilles.

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, is that Certificates are applied to documents that are to be used in countries that are not
members of the Hague Apostille Convention.
