How do I apostille a power
of attorney in Texas?

First, you need to get the power of attorney (POA) properly notarized, and this exact notary jurat or acknowledgment language below (use only one notary verbiage set, not both) must be written on the power of attorney when it is notarized by a Texas notary public.

If this exact notary verbiage is not on your power of attorney the Texas Secretary of State will reject your document.

Then mail or drop off at our Austin, TX office your power of attorney document along with our expedited Texas apostille order form and a prepaid return FedEx or UPS shipping label so we can mail all your documents back to you.
