White Plains Apostilles & Mobile Notary Service Definitive 2022 Guide to getting your Apostilled FBI Background Check.
In order to be clear, we are not channelers. In the United States, channelers are companies that are authorized by the government to collect your fingerprints, send them to the FBI and begin your FBI background check.
Having said that, it should be noted that a channeler is NOT an apostille expediter. If you are dealing with a good expediter, he will be able to apostille your FBI background check in less than a week, sometimes even on the same day.
It is recommended that you use Printscan, located just minutes away at 75 South Broadway in White Plains, in order to obtain the FBI background check in the fastest time. Printscan no longer accepts phone or drop-in appointments. Visit https://www.printscan.com/location/white-plains-ny/ to schedule an appointment – fingerprints and FBI background checks are $90 plus tax.
Printscan can send a fingerprint tech to your house or office! For this, you can call them at (631)782-1700. They don’t have a direct White Plains line anymore.
We recommend getting a PDF version of your FBI background check for the fastest turnaround time. When it’s ready, you’ll be able to upload a PDF to our application page at apostilleapply.com for immediate printing and apostilling.
With apostilleapply.com, you can get services like translation, color scan-to-PDF, and FedEx to your chosen country. We handle everything you need for your apostille and final application.
In addition, many of our requests involve marriage licenses when applying for second citizenship and golden VISAs. If the country wants a current marriage license instead of an original, you’ll need to get that yourself. The Westchester County Clerk’s office on Martin Luter King Blvd in White Plains handles this. In New York City, the Department of Health handles it. Always call the County Clerk in the jurisdiction where the original certificate was issued to find out who issues certified copies.
Are you ready to apostil your FBI background check and documents? You can start the process at apostilleapply.com or text Harry Otto at (914) 441-2444.

Don’t wait until the last minute to finish this document. In an emergency, this document is powerful even if you have a solid will and/or family trust.
The power of attorney (“POA”) should be part of every adult’s financial and estate planning. Unless an individual’s assets are jointly owned or held by a trust, no one can handle his/her financial affairs in the event of incapacity without a power of attorney. It would take a lengthy and expensive court process to appoint a guardian.
A POA is not just a tool to be used later in life. Every parent of a college-bound student should consider having that young adult execute a POA so they can handle financial matters, or even gain access to their child’s residential quarters, if needed.
Earlier this year, the New York State Legislature made significant changes to the New York power of attorney law, which went into effect on June 13, 2021. Because of these changes, it is important for New Yorkers and others with New York POAs to review them at this time and to consider updating them.
An overview of the changes
Title 15 of Article 5 of New York’s General Obligations Law establishes a “statutory short form power of attorney” by which an individual, the Principal, can designate an Agent to act on the Principal’s behalf in matters of personal and financial nature. Even though the POA form may consist of several pages, especially when permitted modifications are added, it is still called Statutory Short Form, so that the language conferring authority with respect to each power listed on the “short form” is construed to incorporate a full description and extent of the agent’s authorized transactions set forth in the statute. Similar statutes exist in many other states.
Powers of attorney are frequently refused by financial institutions and other third parties. Changes in the New York power of attorney law that went into effect in June simplify the form and reduce the likelihood of financial institutions refusing to honor validly executed POAs.
In 2009, a POA form that deviated from the statutory language would be deemed invalid. The statutory form also limited the agent’s ability to make gifts by allowing only a maximum aggregate annual gift of $500, unless the principal executed a separate Statutory Gift Rider (“SGR”). Additionally, the old law provided no sanctions or punitive remedies for third parties refusing to honor a valid POA.
As a result of the new law, the following significant changes have been made:
- Compliance with statutory requirements. According to the new law, a POA form must “substantially conform” to the language provided in the General Obligations Law *5-1513, but is not required to be identical to the POA form in the General Obligations Law §5-1513. POA forms may be valid even if they contain slight errors in spelling, punctuation, formatting, or type slightly different from the statutory POA form language. The following two warnings, which are in the NY GOL *5-1513, cannot be omitted from the POA: the “Important Information for the Agent” clause and the “Caution to the Principal” clause.
- Legislative gift riders will be eliminated. In order for the agent to make gifts in excess of $500 per year, the principal previously had to execute a separate SGR, which required two witnesses to witness the principal’s signature and an acknowledgment from a notary. By amending the law, a principal can authorize the agent to make gifts up to $5,000 per year, and additionally, the principal can modify the standard POA form to authorize the agent to make gifts exceeding $5,000 per year, and to authorize the agent to make gifts to himself or herself or to make other gift transactions and changes to interests in the principal’s property without the need for a separate SGR.
- Penalties for not accepting a valid POA. In the past, financial institutions have refused to accept a valid, properly executed POA or only recognized their own form. Previously, there weren’t any penalties for unreasonable refusal to honor POA. Under the new law, if a third party is found to have acted unreasonably in refusing a POA, the court can award damages, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs. A POA can be rejected under certain circumstances, and there’s a timeline for when it can be rejected. POA recipients have 10 days to accept or reject the POA, or to ask for an affidavit from the agent or an opinion of counsel from the principal, and must then accept or reject the POA in writing within seven days of receiving the affidavit or opinion of counsel.
- Third parties acting in good faith are protected by the Safe Harbor. By law, recipients of a POA are protected if they act in good faith when accepting the POA, even if the POA is later deemed invalid. The recipient is shielded from liability if the following conditions are met: (a) the POA must have the principal’s acknowledged signature verified by a notary public or another authorized to accept acknowledgments; and (b) the recipient must not know that the principal’s signature is forged, the POA is invalid, or that the agent is abusing his/her/its authority.
- Requirement for execution. In New York, a statutory power of attorney, or a non-statutory power of attorney, executed by a principal must: (a) be typed or printed in clear type no smaller than 12 points; and (b) be signed, initialed, and dated by the principal or by another person other than the principal’s agent or successor agent, in the principal’s presence and under the principal’s direction. In either case, the signature of the person signing must be duly notarized and acknowledged, and must be witnessed by two persons who are not named in the instrument as agents or as permissible recipients of gifts, principal. The person who takes the acknowledgment may also serve as one of the witnesses.
Though third parties may more readily accept the new POA form, powers of attorney and statutory gift riders properly executed previously under the law in effect at the time of execution will remain valid.
The search term “Apostille Services Near Me” is one of the most common searches for individuals trying to find an apostille company to authenticate their documents.
For some industries, using a company that makes believe they’re “near you” might be ok. But apostille authentications of your documents, whether a birth certificate or sensitive business documents are not one of them.
Many companies that show up on Google will make-believe they’re “near you” then try and send you FedEx or UPS “mailer packs” to have you ship your documents to them.
This – is what an “apostille service near me” that pays for Google ads does. They essentially waste your time, money and destroy the Apostille business for the rest of us.
If you’re in Westchester County, White Plains Apostille and Mobile Notary either allows you to drop off your documents in person or, in Southern Westchester, will pick them up from you. When expediting your apostille authentication, your documents never leave the expediter’s hands.
Just the fact they are claiming to be an “apostille near me” begins your relationship on a fallacy. If you’re in Westchester, Rockland, or The Bronx we are “an apostille service near me”! We are physically here and “near you”.
In addition, we offer document drop-offs and pick-ups 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.

Generally speaking, one of the first steps to get the apostille is to order a certified copy of the birth certificate through the New York State Department of Vital Statistics.
There are literally millions of U.S. citizens living abroad and many get married, work, or establish businesses outside the United States. If an U.S. citizen is about to marry abroad, obtain dual citizenship, or start a business in a member of the Hague Apostille network, then they will need to provide a birth certificate with an apostille. The birth certificate must be authenticated by the same state that has issued the certified copy.
Let New York Apostilles help handle the process for as little as $149. We can even assist you in authenticating a copy as many countries will accept copies when you can not obtain an exemplified or certified copy.
You can even upload your copy securely here: apostilleapply.com
