How do I get a copy of my
identification or a verification
document apostilled or authenticated?
If you need a photocopy of your passport, passport card, driver’s license, military ID card, state identification card, permanent resident card, visa, bank statements, credit card statements, utility bills, apartment lease agreement, social security card, or phone bill apostilled or authenticated you must make and sign a sworn written statement (affidavit) in front of a Texas notary public.
You can highlight then copy and paste this exact affidavit statement verbiage (see below) onto a Word document and along with a copy of your identification or document you can go get it notarized by any Texas public notary.
Once you’ve signed and got this affidavit notarized and made a photocopy of your identification or verification document you can mail it or drop it off at our office so we can rush apostille or authenticate it with the Texas Secretary of State.
