Apostille for state background check badge walkthrough


June 7, 2015 by JL Walker

Request and receive your state background check, making sure your full name is printed correctly.

Step 1 – Notarizing it
Everyone in smalltown Ohio knows at least 1 notary public. She might be a co-worker or he might be a friend of your uncle’s or a guy who works with your dad, but at most you’ll have to go 2 degrees outside your inner circle to find one. Find that person, and have them sign and stamp your document.

Step 2 – Filling out the apostille request form
Go to the Ohio Secretary of State website to download your apostille request form. The address where you need to mail your request is also on this website.

Remember to include a check to cover the cost for the apostille service for $5.00, well as a self-addressed, stamped envelope with your document and form. Again, this is another part of the process where you should rely on your trusted and selfless accomplice (what would the world be like without loving and caring moms, amiright?). You’ll receive the apostilled document just a few days after you mail it. And if you happen to be in the Columbus area, you can go directly to the Secretary of State office and save on the postage fees.

Congratulations, you’ve completed your badge!
