 If you have documents that you would like rushed through government offices in NYC like the Secretary of State or any of the foreign Consulates, we provide a courier service that can work with you!

After you have compiled your dossier and are ready to begin authentication, you can choose to have your documents hand-delivered to various NYC government offices to obtain seals.  We service the following venues in NYC for the authentication of documents:

  •  
County Clerks of NYC (Manhattan, Bronx, Brooklyn only)
  •  
 NY Secretary of State
  •  
 All Consulates located in NYC*

*The NYC Chinese Consulate will only process documents from the States of Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Vermont.

NYC Courier Service* includes:

  •  
Reviewing documents for accuracy.
  •  
 Obtaining all  seals by County Clerks, NY Secretary of State, and any foreign Consulate located in NYC.
  •  
 Hand delivery and pick up of all documents.

*Our courier service is limited to within the boundaries of Manhattan; however, we also service the county clerks of Brooklyn and the Bronx.

All services are provided without regard to the state of residence of the adoptive parents or the country in which the adoption will take place.  All documents are given same (if possible) or next day treatment.  Documents are hand-delivered to all NYC offices.  All information contained the the documents are treated as CONFIDENTIAL.

Email or call Mr. Chris Moore at (845) 642-2990 before sending the documents so he knows they are coming and can plan to accommodate them.  Documents originating from states other than New York must be state-sealed in the originating state before they can be submitted to any Consulate (this includes birth certificates).  If you need assistance with state authentication in any state besides New York, please email us for instructions.

Mailing Instructions:

  •  
Send (1) all original documents; plus (2) one photocopy of each document (no two-sided copies and DO NOT REMOVE STAPLES); plus (3) photocopy of your driver's license or passport photo page to our NYC Office by overnight mail (preferably FedEX), letting us know which country they are for.  For China, you must include the Chinese Consulate G-1 Form with an original signature.
  •  
The Chinese Consulate no longer accepts checks, so a money order made payable to "NY Chinese Consulate" must now accompany all documents that need authentication there.  Fees payable to "Legal-Eaze" can be by check.
