What Is A Notary Public?
In Australia a Notary Public is a senior lawyer that has held a principal’s practising certificate for 5 years and has undertaken further studies in Notary practice. The position of a Notary Public is one of great trust as they are responsible for declaring that a document is true, a signature is legitimate, or that a person’s identity is valid etc. This is particularly important for overseas countries as they rely on a Notary Public’s seal to authenticate matters and prevent fraud.
Do I Need A Notary?
You only need to engage a Notary Public Melbourne when you are dealing with overseas countries. If you need to get a document certified for a matter strictly limited in Australia you do not need a Notary. Rather you should engage a Justice of the Peace to verify your documents.
Typically an overseas government department, paper work, or lawyer will instruct that a document can only be certified by a Notary Public. This is how you know if you need to engage a Notary Public or not. However if you are unsure whether you need a Notary please give our office a call and we’ll be happy to clarify.
