**Navigating Federal Authentication: Streamlining USDOS Authentications & Legalizations**
When dealing with crucial documents like FBI background checks or federal court records, the process of USDOS Authentications and Legalizations becomes paramount. Understanding the intricacies of this process is essential, especially when aiming to use these documents internationally.
**Common Documents Requiring USDOS Authentication/Legalization**
FBI background checks are among the most common documents that necessitate USDOS Authentications and Legalizations. It's important to note that any document submitted to the USDOS for this purpose must be in English, emphasizing the importance of linguistic compliance.
**The Double Authentication Process for Federal Court Documents**
For federal court documents, an additional layer of complexity is introduced. These documents must first be Certified by the USDOJ (U.S. Department of Justice) before proceeding to the USDOS for further processing. The final step involves either Apostillation (for use in a Hague country) or Authentication (for use in a non-Hague country). This double authentication process increases the overall cost, particularly for documents related to international court cases or the trials of foreigners in the USA.
**Ensuring Document Eligibility: Email for Preliminary Verification**
To facilitate a smooth authentication process, we encourage you to contact our office at (213) 400-7622 or book an appointment online. Additionally, you can expedite the initial assessment by emailing a copy of your document (front and back) to us in advance. This preliminary step allows us to verify the document's eligibility for authentication and provides you with a transparent quote.
