Notary Public

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.

Notaries 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.

A Notary’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 rather than a Justice of the Peace (JP) to witness or certify your documents.

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 please don’t hesitate to contact us to make an appointment.
