We only need three things from you to complete the expedited Texas single status affidavit apostille service near me process.
First, mail us or drop off at our office your original Texas single status affidavit form (it cannot be a photocopy) that has been properly notarized by a Texas notary public (you cannot use a notary public from any other state or country).
If you have an original single status search letter that was issued and signed by a Texas county clerk’s office (only a handful of the largest Texas counties offer this) then that original letter does not need to be notarized because it’s considered a recordable document.
Or if you ordered from Texas Vital Statistics/Texas Vital Records a marriage verification letter or a divorce verification letter those two documents basically act like state verified single status affidavits and they don’t need to be notarized because they are considered by the Texas Secretary of State to be a recordable document.
Apostille Texas can also provide you with a traveling notary public that can be sent out to your home, business, office, or hotel to notarize any type of legal documents if you live, work, or visiting the Austin, TX metro area.
Please call or email us to let us know in what zip code you need a mobile notary public to travel to and how many documents you need notarized to obtain a quote from us.
