What is a notary?
A notary, or notary public, is trained to verify documents. Their signatures and stamps are required to complete some documents. Notaries confirm a signer’s identity, understanding of the document and willingness to sign. However, they won’t ensure your files are legal or correct.
What can a notary do?
Notaries can verify:
- Powers of attorney
- And more!
- Certify copies of birth, death or marriage certificates.
- Represent employers to verify employment eligibility.
- Choose, complete or give advice on how to fill documents.
- Provide other legal counsel.
