What is a Notary Public?
A Notary Public, also known as a Public Notary, is a legal professional appointed by the New South Wales Supreme Court. They have the authority to administer oaths, witness signatures on documents, and authenticate legal documents for use both in Australia and internationally.
You may need the services of a Notary Public when you have Australian personal or business documents that need to be used overseas. These documents must go through a process of legalisation or notarisation to ensure their validity and acceptance in foreign countries.
