Duties of a Notary Public
The job of Notary Public’s is to ensure that the contents of the document have been:
- sworn to by the applicant
- under an oath or affirmation
During notarization, the Notary Public will put their signature and notary Stamp on your documents. The notary may also certify that copies of documents are “true copies” of that document.
The law requires that where documents require notarization that:
- proper identification must be provided
- original documents are presented to the notary public
- documents are properly completed
Please complete all documents prior to arriving at our office, EXCEPT for signatures and dates.
Where certified true copies of documents are required, the original and copy must be presented to the notary public for examination.
Applicants must provide proper identification for the Notary Public.
