Notary Services exist to prevent fraud and protect people’s identities and belongings.
A Notary Public performs many important duties:
You may be heading overseas and need certain documents witnessed, signed and authenticated for various reasons. Or you could require someone to witness your signature for business purposes locally.
Whatever the reason you require notary services, TY Lawyers in Chatswood specialises in all types both domestically and internationally: personal documentation, corporate and business transactions and international authentication.
Notarisation serves three purposes:
Examples of Common Notary Documents
When utilised, a Power of Attorney (POA) gives someone legal authority to make decisions on your behalf. There are many reasons for this, for example, if someone loses cognitive ability to make their own decisions, they may choose someone they trust to make decisions on their behalf.
A legally binding Will requires multiple signatures to be witnessed in the sight of a lawyer or notary public.
If you’re looking for someone professional to witness or authenticate corporate documents, a notary public can assist.
When relocating or working on a visa in another country, you may be required to provide your educational certificates or qualifications to the intended country. A notary public can witness and verify these documents for you.
If a child under 18 is travelling overseas without one or both parents, it is advisable to complete a travel consent letter. If there is no consent to overseas travel by one or both parents, questions could be raised at immigration checkpoints. Generally travel consent documents signed in Australia for use overseas will be required to be notarised.
It’s important to always check the requirements of the country you are intending your child to travel to, to see what is legally required.
