Notarization is a legal process where a document is certified to be genuine or authentic or a formal statement or oath is taken.  There are many legal documents that need to be notarized.

Notarizing a document is very different from witnessing a document.  A witness signs the document confirming that they witnessed a person sign a document.  A lawyer or notary notarize a document to confirm that the document is genuine and authentic. 

Both our lawyers and notaries can assist you with notarizations such as

  1. Acknowledgements: which are documents done to ensure that the signer is willingly signing the document and acknowledging the purpose of the documentation
  2. Certification of copies: notarization of copies of original documents to verify that the copies are authentic copies of the original document
  3. Oaths and affirmations: where a person makes a statement under oath or affirmation in front of the notary or lawyer;
  4. Signing a document in our capacity as an officer on land documents or other legal documents.

Some examples of things needing notarization:

  • Land documents
  • Travel documents
  • Affidavits
  • Statutory Declarations
  • Certified True Copies of Originals.
