Same Person Affidavit

If you have a name change, you may want to draft a same person affidavit to show you are the same person on different IDs. After embassy authentication, your same person affidavit can be accepted in China.

A. Same Person Affidavit Authentication Procedure

STEP ONE: Notarization

The applicant must present at the local notary public to get his same person affidavit notarized. Laroz only offer local notary public service. After notarization, your document can be authenticated for the next step.

STEP TWO: County Clerk Authentication

Some states require same person affidavits to be authenticated by County Clerk prior to state authentication. For example, same person affidavits notarized in the New York City should be authenticated by County Clerk before New York State certification.
Note: Different States have different requirements, some states do not need County Clerk authentication before state certification. If you want to learn more detail, please contact us.

STEP THREE: The Secretary Of State Certification

The authentication processing time varies in different state. Usually, it takes one to three weeks. Some states offer expedited service, some don’t. For more information, please contact us.

STEP FOUR: The US Department Of State Authentication

Authentication staff of the US Department of State will receive documents and perform an initial review during 8:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. Monday through Friday (except federal holidays). It is also required to pick up one’s completed certificate(s) between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. on the cited date.
To save the trouble, you may use our service on this step. When you create a new order, you need to choose code “DC” on the “Issued by state” column.

STEP FIVE: The Chinese Embassy/Consulate General Authentication

The People’s Republic of China currently maintains one Embassy in Washington D.C., but also maintains 5 consulates-general in the following U.S. cities: New York, NY; Chicago, IL; San Francisco, CA; Los Angeles, CA; Houston, TX. Each Embassy or consulate-general hold consular jurisdiction over specific states.
Your legalization application may be rejected by the Embassy/Consulate General that does not hold consular jurisdiction over the state where your document is executed.
When deciding which embassy/consulate-general to go, you should check the state that issued the document, not where you reside.
