Secretary of State Certified Document Services in Your State

A Secretary of State Certified document contains the signature of the official who signed it, their official capacity, and, when applicable, the identity of the seal or stamp affixed to the document. This certification validates its authenticity.

In the United States, both the Secretary of State and the Federal Government (U.S. Department of State Office of Authentication) can issue certified documents.

Authentication of Documents by the Secretary of State Office

In cases where Secretary of State-certified documents are not applicable, business documents often require authentication. The process typically involves signing the document, notarization, examination by county or state officials, and finally, certification by the U.S. Secretary of State. Here are some common government documents subject to authentication:

  • Assumed Name Certificates
  • Certificates of Merger
  • Certified Copies of Corporate Formation
  • Federally-Chartered Bank Documents
  • Good Standing Certificates
  • Patent and Trademark Documents

Examples of Non-Government Documents:

  • Birth Certificates
  • Corporate Directors Certificates
  • Corporate Secretary Certificates
  • Diplomas
  • Divorce Judgments
  • Marriage Certificates
  • Power of Attorney Documents

A Secretary of State Certified document may not be used for document recognition in the country of issue; certifications are strictly for public documents. The Secretary of State's office is the primary issuer of certifications and authentications for documents.
