Notary Public

Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters cannot be trusted with important matters.

Albert Einstein

Notary Public

More than a witness, more than a solicitor.

If you are being asked to have a document “notarised”, then that document is being used overseas. Public Notaries are internationally recognised as trustworthy ‘eyes’ on behalf of an overseas person. Notaries detail in words an event (such as signing, witnessing or authenticating a document). The Notary’s account of what happened here in Australia is then relied upon overseas- making your document legal and official.
