Hello one and all,

I am wondering about the legitimacy of an apostille service: http://www.usauthentication.com/

They seem pretty legit. I am just wondering if anyone else has used them and if they were happy with their services.

They are very affordable, $55, compared to the other apostille services that charge up to $200.

So, any comments about this would be helpful.

Thanks,

the question is not whether we think they are legit, it is whether the korean authorities will accept their authentication.

If I were you, I'd play it safe and go through the official channels.
I don't know how it works in the USA, but in the UK the government department is called the foreign and commonwealth office.
your government department may have a similar name.

in the U.S. the State Department is the only department that can give an Apostille.

The US Authentication Services is a channeler . . they basically take the document to the State Department for me and expedite the process. There are tons of channelers that do this type of service for a fee . . . I am just wondering if anybody has worked with this particular channeler . . .and from my research, plenty of people have and have great success with them.

I used them to get my docs apostilled for my current job. They were prompt, efficient, professional, and cheap.
