Have your documents certified by a Notary, so they can be used both here and overseas.
Bambrick Legal’s Notaries are appointed by the South Australian Supreme Court. They can help you with many types of documents that require verification or certification, including:
- Contracts, documents, and certificates that will be used overseas
- Affidavits, powers of attorney, and statutory declarations that will be used overseas
- Copies of original documents, which will be used overseas
- Verification of Identity
- Personal statutory documents
- Verification of a company’s good standing, and other business and commercial documents.
What is the difference between a Notary and a Justice of the Peace?
In Australia, a Notary is a lawyer with more than 5 years’ continuous experience. They must hold a current practicing certificate. Notaries are able to advise on matters of law, and are able to prepare documents destined for international use. A Justice of the Peace may not be a lawyer, and can only certify documents to be used within Australia.
How it works
- Book an appointment to see one of our Notaries. If your document is in another language, check when you book whether it must be translated.
- Prepare your documentation.
- Bring your document and suitable identification, such as your passport and/or driver’s license.
During your appointment, your Notary will:
- Verify that you are who you say you are
- Verify that you have the authority to sign. This is important if you are representing an organisation or company.
- Make sure you are capable of making decisions
- Check that you understand the intention and effect of the document being signed
- Verify that the document is lawful.
Note: If your document is unlawful, or appears to be a forgery or fraudulent, our Notary will not be able to help you.
