*** DUE to Covid-19 Closures ***

*** Due to the Covid-19 Lockdown the Secretary of State has closed its Sacramento next day service walkin desk and reduced staffing – We have arranged to have our courier submit certificate orders thru their dropbox system. The estimated processing and release time is 7-10 business days (This is only a estimate and could change without notice) But we will submit your request to their dropbox the day you place your order and as soon as it is released by the Secretary of State we will scan and email you – Note once you submit your order it can not be cancelled as we can not control their work flow or request a refund from the Secretary of State…
