How does the Texas Secretary of State
attach or affix an apostille certificate or
authentication certificate to a document?


The Texas Secretary of State will issue and staple either an apostille (Hague Convention member country) or authentication (non-Hague Convention member country) certificate (the certificate is an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper) onto the legal document that was presented to them.

If it was a notarized non-recordable document, they will staple the apostille or authentication certificate onto the page where the notarization was placed at on your document.
