Notary Public in Perth
Looking for a Notary Public in Perth?
A Notary Public is also known in Australia as a Public Notary or Notary. They are senior lawyers that, in addition to practising in their chosen legal field, have been admitted to the Supreme Court as a Notary Public.
Notary Publics can witness and notarise documentation so that it is legally valid and recognised overseas, administer oaths and statutory declarations and help confirm a person’s identity.
How can a notary public help me?
A Notary Public’s primary role is to notarise documents so that they are legally valid and recognised in overseas countries. This includes but is not limited to:
- Certifying copies and execution of legal and business documents
- Witnessing affidavits, statutory declarations and other documents
- Administering oaths
Whenever you wish to use a document overseas you will need to engage a Notary Public rather than a Justice of the Peace (JP) to witness or certify your documents.
Can your firm prepare documents for production overseas?
Our firm can prepare Notarial Certificates for you to use overseas. If you require legal documents to be drawn up that can be used in another country, we suggest that it is preferable that you try to obtain the services of a lawyer in the country in which you intend to use that particular document.
If you would like further advice on Notary Publics, please don’t hesitate to contact us to make an appointment.
