What is a Notary Public
A Notary Public is an official that can certify a client's signature does belong to him or her. This is normally required when documents are to be used in an overseas jurisdiction. A Notary also administers oaths, takes declarations and swears affidavits. As a Notary, Graeme can also certify documents as being true copies of documents whether originals or translations.
