Document Services

Do you live in Florida and need your documents state authenticated, or need any  document services from the Secretary of State, Division of Corporations, Dept. of State, Supreme Court, DMV, etc.?

Florida Capital Courier Service

Thank you for choosing Florida Capital Courier Service for your document messenger service. We specialize in hand carrying your important documents to the Secretary of State, for the purpose of attaining state notarization and/or certification. We work only in the state of Florida, and are an owner operated company. Although we primarily focus on authentication of adoption dossiers, we can accommodate other commercial or personal documents for the purpose of state authentication.

What you can expect from us:

Honesty, Integrity, Reliability: Because we live in the Florida Capital, your documents will be turned in for processing the SAME day they are received. We then pick them up the next working day and promptly return them to you, in your pre-paid mailer.

*******On June 5, 2019 – the Florida Dept. of State has put in place a new ruling that they may keep your documents 24 hours.  Thus, our ‘same-day’ service is not available.  All documents are dropped off, and pick up the next working day, then they are returned to you (if that is your desire)  in your pre-paid envelope that same day.

Personalized Service: Each person is important and so are their document(s). We understand that these documents can be of vital importance to a legal process, to a pending adoption, or to any  number of other situations. FCCS is owner-operated, no one handles your documents but us.

August 2011 – “My name is Allison and my husband and I are adopting a little girl from the Ukraine….. I first called Teresa, Executive Director of “His Kids Too”, to ask for her help in getting our documents apostilled. She went above and beyond to get my documents apostilled immediately and returned the same day…..”

“On several occasions FCCS has processed my apostilled documents with a same-day turnaround, a task virtually unheard of in the adoption process. They were professional and had excellent follow-up skills. They were prompt to return messages and answer questions. When it was time for my post-placement reports to be apostilled, I didn’t hesitate to use their services again. I will continue to use them for each PPR.” A Satisfied Customer K. Z.
