Apostille Services

Apostille Services

Apostille Services. How many do I need?

“How many?” is one of the most confusing issues of Apostille services. If you have more than one document to authenticate, it depends on how many people the apostille represents. How many apostille services are required depends on two main factors.

Apostille services with single docs for 2 children.

If you are attempting to obtain citizenship for your two children, and the receiving country asks for their birth certificates, this represents “two applications” 2 Apostilles would be required.

Apostille services with multiple documents for one child.

If the receiving country is looking for multiple documents, like a birth certificate and proof of birth for the mother from the hospital, this would be “one application” only one apostille would be required.

Apostille services with one adult proving guardianship of 2 children.

When we process this Apostille service we double up the copies of each doc. Many times the recipient may wish to separate the docs of each child for separate files. They are satisfied that both children’s files docs came from the same apostille.

How to Get an Apostille in New York City in One Easy Step – or 3.



If you need to provide a birth certificate overseas you may ask “what is” and “how do I apostille a birth certificate“?

First, an apostille is a form of authentication for a document. An apostille is necessary when you’re using it in another country.

For example, OCI applicants for dual citizenship submit apostille documents, guaranteeing their authenticity.


How do you pronounce apostille? The most popular pronunciations is a mix between “ah-puh-STEEL” and “uh-POSS-teel.”


Getting an apostille can be confusing. In Westchester County, you need to visit three offices to get an apostille for your document. Hence, the name of this article is “One or Three”.

For “ONE STEP”, head over to www.apostilleapply.com and fill out one form. Done. It could cost you about 5 minutes and as little as $149 – complete!


Or, you can try the 3 step process for about $15, it will take few hours, plus 3-4 weeks to receive your apostille from Albany.

In part 2, we will cover either obtaining documents from the clerks office or, answer the question:


What is Letter of Exemplification?

Exemplification of Birth or Death Record (letter of exemplification) is a separate page in attached to the issued document.

In Westchester County, a local court clerk can issue a certified copy of the birth by providing an exemplified version. What this mean is the Clerk is saying the original copy is no longer available, but they certify that the exemplified copy is a legal replacement.

The New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene will attach the letter to New York City issued birth and death certificates.

In legal terms, exemplification means “an attested copy of a document, under official seal” in other words, a Letter of Exemplification attests that the attached birth or death certificate is a true and certified copy. In and exemplified document, it just refers to the document itself.

Often you’ll hear the term “long form“. This returns to a more original version and this needs to be requested.

If your document in an exemplified form, you will not need a notary involved in the apostille process. The New York State Department of State in Albany and NYC will accept this “as-is”.

Use our handy secure application and for a no-obligation review of where you’re at in the process. You can even securely upload your documents for a quick review. If we can assist you for free we always will.

If you get lost along the way, a great resource is to head over to the Westchester County Clerk at 111 Martin Luther King Blvd in White Plains. Someone there will always know how to help or what Court or Clerk to send you to.

Apostille Near Me – The Importance of Dealing Local for your Document Apostille…

Find A Notary Near Me

Here at White Plains Apostille and Mobile Notary, the search term “Apostille Near Me” is one of the most common searches for someone trying to find an apostille firm to authenticate their documents.

For some industries, using a company that makes believe they’re “near you” might be ok, but an apostille authentication is not one of them. Many companies that show up on Google will make-believe they’re “near you” then try and send you “mailer packs” to have you ship your documents to them. This is what an “apostille service near me” does.

If you’re in Westchester County, White Plains Apostille Mobile Notary either allows you to drop off your documents in person or, in Lower Westchester, will pick them up from you.

When we expedite your apostille authentication, your documents never leave our 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”!

Westchester County Notary

We are often asked to apostille documents that come from Rockland County and while we can apostille the documents, we can not notarize or authenticate the notary stamp of a Rockland County commissioned notary. We are only commissioned in Westchester County and, as such, can only notarize your documents in Westchester. One of the important reasons for this, is that should a problem arise that requires a Court’s intervention, it would be difficult to call an “out of county” notary into a proceeding.

But we are still fully qualified and regularly apostille or authenticate documents from anywhere in New York State. If you have any questions whatsoever please reach out by text, WhatsApp or phone to (914)441-2444 or use our online form at apostilleapply.com

If you only require a Westchester Notary for mobile services, please use our “contact a notary” form. We are available 7 days a week until 11pm!
