Is OP saying a certified copy of a death certificate or birth certificate issued by a California county will not be honored by Mexico? The only birth certificates issued by the State of California are for adopted children. Otherwise the counties issue these documents.


Again, it depends upon what you are trying to do. I don't see why anyone would need a death certificate from the US here. Birth certificates are issued, in most cases, by counties, but only the state does the apostille. Here in Mexico they want things apostilled. For residency purposes, if you do your application in the US, they will take a birth certificate that is not apostilled. If, however, you do it here in Mexico, it must be apostilled.

In our cases, the birth certificates that we used to get our passports with 50 years ago were considered to be too old by California and Oregon, so we had to get more current birth certificates from the counties then send them to the state.

We are fortunate that we have the time for this. We have found how easy it is to get a US notarization on line and free on line FAX services too.
