WITNESSING YOUR DOCUMENTS
There are certain documents can be witnessed and signed ONLY by an ‘eligible witness’.
A Notary public is one of the ‘eligible witnesses’ who can witness overseas documents or documents going overseas.
TYPES OF DOCUMENTS
The following documents are required to be formally executed in the presence of an ‘eligible witness’:
· Certifying a person’s identity Affidavits
· Certifying true and original documents such as certificates
· Statutory declarations and witnessing and administering affirmations or oaths
· Powers of Attorney
· Dealing with documentation for land, property, bank loans and deceased estates
· Government documents
If anyone of the above documents are to be sent to overseas, then a NOTARY PUBLIC is the only person can witness and certify the document.
WHO IS A NOTARY PUBLIC?
A notary public validates documents and transactions so that they can be valuable in overseas.
A notary public can also certify the proper execution or signing of any sort of document that is to be used overseas, and if required, confirm that it is binding under Australian law.
Unlike America , Notary Public services do not cease within a time period .
LEGALISING documents are is done by Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade
DFAT will not advise you what needs to be legalised to use in another country.
Ask the overseas authority which documents you need legalised.
Confirm the documents are eligible for legalising by DFAT.
If your document is not an original Australian public document, in other words if the documents originated from Overseas then it needs to be certified by a Notary Public to be notarised.
