Austin Texas Secretary of State Apostille Services - Don't Be Scammed!
We get calls and emails everyday from people literally from around the world that are needing either personal or corporate documents apostilled in the state of Texas. With the most Fortune 1000 companies of any state in the U.S. and the second most Fortune 500 companies, Texas has alot of corporate apostille documents that need to be filed.
With this all said, the two biggest complaints we here from people is how outrageous (we agree) the apostille fees are they've seen online from different nationwide or Texas based apostilled document services companies. The second is they were told they could apostille documents when the TX SOS clearly states they can't or not unless they've went thru certain legal channels first.
Examples of this are...
- Certified copies of Birth Certificates, Death Certificates or Marriage Certificates issued ONLY by Texas Department of State Health Services.
-Certified copies of Divorce Records issued ONLY by Texas Department of State Health Services or Texas courts.
- Certified copies of corporation documents: Articles of Incorporation, Articles of Amendment, Articles of Merger, Articles of Dissolution, Certificate of Status issued ONLY by Texas Secretary of State.
Documents Issued by Federal Agencies
Apostilles for documents generated by U.S. federal executive and administrative agencies are ONLY issued by (NOT by ANY state Secretary of State's office):
Authentications Office U. S. Department of State 518 23rd St., N.W. Washington, D.C. 20520 (202) 647-5002
Apostilles for documents generated by U.S. Courts are ONLY issued by the clerks and deputy clerks of the Federal Court System ONLY. (NOT by ANY state Secretary of State's office):
A high school or college transcript, degree or diploma may only be certified by the educational institution that ISSUED the transcript or diploma. The certifying official for the school/institution MUST complete the certification before a licensed Texas Notary Public. The ORIGINAL notarized document (no copies) must be sent and only then can a Texas apostille be issued for the notarized certified transcript or diploma by the TX Secretary of State's office.
Or for notarization of a PHOTOCOPY of the original school record, the owner of the original document must sign an affidavit on the photocopy, in the presence of the notary public. In either case, the notary must complete the appropriate notarial certificate acknowledging the date the signer appeared before him/her.
To compare prices for the EXACT same Texas apostille service we provide, we have included some of the biggest apostille companies fees we copied right off there website and what they charge for Texas apostille services compared to Mobile Austin Notary. Be ready to be shocked! :O
apostilla.com $200.00 includes notary stamp (only $6 in TX), SOS filing fee (only $15 in TX), and overnight U.S only courier fee (averages $15-$25). So if you take off the $6 notary fee, $15 state filing fee, and we take the worst case scenario the U.S ONLY courier fee of $25 that all totals $46. $200 - $46 = $154 there charging you for ONE Texas apostilled document. We charge only $65-$90 and the vast majority of the time you will need to get your documents notarized in the state or country you live in before you send them to Texas to be apostilled. So that $6 notary fee you would never be charged for by us.
apostille.com $400 PER diploma, transcript, or degree. (what can we say about this, beyond robbery with this $400 per document price).
apostillenow.com 1st document apostilled $159, additional documents $99 - includes $6 notary, TX state filing fee $15, and priority mail to USA only ($5-$9). So if you take off the $6 notary fee, $15 state filing fee, and we take the worst case scenario the U.S ONLY priority mail fee of $9 that all totals $30. $159 - $20 = $129 there charging you for ONE Texas apostilled document. We charge only $65-$90 and the vast majority of the time you will need to get your documents notarized in the state or country you live in before you send them to Texas to be apostilled. So that $6 notary fee you would never be charged for by us. Plus, they charge you $99 for any additional apostilled documents they do for you. We charge a nationwide low of just $25 per additional apostilled documents.
samspassport.com ·$70.00 FOR REGULAR SERVICE - our fee $65 ·$100.00 FOR RUSH SERVICE - our fee $75 ·$150.00 FOR EMERGENCY SERVICE - our fee $90 No discount first 4 documents!!
