Guatemalan Consulate Los Angeles: Authentications/Legalizations
The Consulate in Los Angeles services California, Hawaii, Nevada, and the Pacific Islands. We courier your documents to the County, Secretary of State, and to the Consulate.
Your first step is to get your document/s notarized; county sealed (in states where applicable), and State Sealed (separate page attached) by the Secretary of State (Lt. Governor - Hawaii). In California, documents no longer need to be County authenticated unless your birth certificate was issued by the Dept. of Health. You may send your notarized documents, County issued birth and marriage certificates, and divorce decrees directly to us to courier your documents to the CA Secretary of State in Los Angeles.
When sending your package, always send it by FedEX, ExpressMail, UPS, etc. (trackable service).
