How to get a california birth certificate

Birth Certificate Apostille

Do you need an apostille on your California Birth Certificate ?

If you are planning to get married, travel, relocate, study, or obtain dual-citizenship, you will be asked to obtain an apostille on your California birth certificate.  Our offices in Los Angeles & San Francisco can apostille documents issued from any of the 58 Counties in California.

In California, we recommend that your birth certificate be issued within the past fifteen years and from the County Clerk’s office.  Birth certificates issued from the Health Department will need County Clerk authentication before the State will apostille the document.  For example, if you were born in San Francisco and your certificate was issued by the Health Services Department and signed by a medical doctor, the County Clerk must authenticate the doctor’s signature before the State will apostille the document.  Regardless of who has signed your documents, we have the knowledge, experience, and resources to authenticate your certificates quickly saving you time and money.
