A Notary Public is an officer of the law
a status recognised internationally
It is the oldest branch of the legal profession dating back to Roman times. Notaries are appointed by the Archbishop of Canterbury and are subject to regulation by the Court of Faculties. A professional Notary must be fully insured and maintain fidelity cover for the protection of clients and the public.
Documents for Notarising
The services of a Notary Public are required because many countries see the Notary as being at the pinnacle of the independent legal professions.
Any document required for use overseas but signed for in this country normally needs to be done in the presence of a Notary Public. A Notary Public will also sign and validate the documents and finally it will be sealed with a unique stamp.
Should the document need to be validated by the Foreign Office or Foreign Consulate I will ensure this process is completed.
For most overseas documents it is not sufficient for a solicitor to authenticate the information.
