Notarized Documents

WHAT IS A NOTARIZATON?

The notarization process facilitates trust in a civil society and prevents forged, coerced and incompetently signed documents from overwhelming our court system.

The notarization process often require the notary to examine the authenticity of a document, witness a signature, and verify the signer’s identity, willingness and intention. For Statutory Declarations and Affidavits the signer will need to swear that they have read and understood the document and that the contents are true. To falsely swear the accuracy of such a document is a criminal offence (purgery) and has the same serious consequences as lying in court.
