Apostille Services - $85 each document- Drop it off with us in Los Angeles!

Hollywood Notary Dot Net is offering a new Drop-Off Apostille Service, where you can bring your California documents to us and we will get the Apostille for you, same-day!  Your documents (with Apostilles) can be picked up at our office later on in the day- we will give you a pick up time when you come to our office.  Your documents are guaranteed to be ready for pick up no later than 6:30PM.

We also allow you to bring documents in by appointment from 7PM to 11PM- just call (323)393-5822 for an appointment.  Documents dropped off with us after 3PM will be available by 6:30 PM the next day, or earlier (we will tell you the exact time they will be ready).

To use this service, all documents must be dropped off to us in person (not by mail), and all documents must either be picked up in person or shipped by Fed Ex, as explained below. 

All clients using this service have the option of having their documents shipped by Fed Ex Express for an extra $40 or by Fed Ex Ground for $25 (these rates are for shipping to Southern California only).   

We accept cash, business checks and credit cards.  

We get Apostilles for Birth, Marriage and Death Certificates that are issued and bear the signature of the County Recorder of California counties.  We also get Apostilles for all properly-notarized documents (with California Jurat or Acknowledgment) by California Notaries Public.  

We are experts at helping clients get Apostilles for all different kinds of documents: Power of Attorney, School Transcripts, Deeds, Certificate of Origin, Certificate of Free Sale, Automobile Titles, copies of Passports and Driver Licenses, and many other types of documents. 

People who choose to go to the California Secretary of State's office in Downtown Los Angeles to get their own Apostilles will find a lot of inconveniences when they go - traffic,  parking ($6 to $10), risk of traffic ticket, metal detector screening, long lines, many people in line (some sick with colds and flu), risk of having documents rejected because they weren't notarized properly, documents not signed by County Recorder, etc.  

When you visit our office, you can get your documents notarized properly, and included in the $75  price.  You can pick up your documents at your convenience- we will either call you or text you exactly when they are ready!  

You can bring your original Diploma and Transcripts- we have a copier to make a copy of anything that needs to receive Apostille. 

We are located 4 miles west of Downtown Los Angeles, in a historic apartment building (Ike and Tina Turner used to live in our building).  We are located at 4025 W. Adams Blvd. #8, Los Angeles, CA 90018. 

Using our service, we guarantee that if we review and accept your documents that they will receive Apostille, or you will receive a complete refund of all money paid, plus $20 for your trouble.   You best believe, we will do our best so that this does not happen! 

To schedule a drop off with us, call David Ransom at (323)393-5822 or Jaime Tejeda at (323)523-7430.

Why Our Service Is The Best

1.  We have been doing Apostilles consistently since 2006

2.  We are located 4 miles west of Downtown Los Angeles, in an uncrowded but historic neighborhood, with plenty of free parking and easy access. We are located near Mid City and West Adams, in a nice area called Jefferson Park, just a quarter of a mile off the Santa Monica Freeway (Interstate 10).  

3.  You can drop off your documents and not worry- they will be processed fast, correctly,  and you can come back at your convenience to pick up your documents.  

4.  David Ransom, the owner, is an expert Notary and Apostille Agent.  Your documents will be handled by one of the most experienced Apostille experts around.  Your documents will be notarized at no additional charge (if required) if they are submitted to us for Apostille processing.  School and university diplomas and transcripts generally need notarization.

In general, avoid the madness of the experience.

6. People who don't want to disrupt their workweek can drop off their documents to us on Saturday and Sunday, knowing that their documents will be processed on Monday, when they can then either pick up their documents or opt to have them shipped by Fed Ex as mentioned above!
