Signing a document in front of a notary

Have you been advised that you need to sign a document in front of a notary?  

Sometimes overseas jurisdictions will require you to sign a document in the presence of a notary public.

There are many types of documents which you might need to sign in front of a notary public in order for an overseas jurisdiction to accept your signature.

Some examples are where you are renouncing your entitlement to an inheritance in China, or you have a deceased relative living in Australia who had a bank account overseas, or you wish to sell an overseas timeshare or you may wish to authorise your child to travel overseas.

What you need to do:

Book an appointment with us, and bring along the document that requires your signature as well as two forms of photo identification. 

Once I have checked these documents and verified your identity, you then sign the relevant document in my presence, and I will then prepare my 'Notarial Act' for you, which will include a certification of your signature.

You can then take this (if required) to the Department of Foreign Affairs adn Trade for an Apostille or Authentication.

The whole process takes less than 30 mins.
