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
- Acknowledgements: which are documents done to ensure that the signer is willingly signing the document and acknowledging the purpose of the documentation
- Certification of copies: notarization of copies of original documents to verify that the copies are authentic copies of the original document
- Oaths and affirmations: where a person makes a statement under oath or affirmation in front of the notary or lawyer;
- 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
- Statutory Declarations
- Certified True Copies of Originals.
