Notarization of Documents

There are many documents such as long distance agreements, wills, medical documents and apostilles that need authentication or notarization in order to be valid. Notarization is the assurance that a document is authentic and that the signature on it is genuine. The appointed and impartial Notary Public must screen the signer for awareness, willingness and most importantly identity. This helps prevent document fraud as well as protects the rights and property of citizens from forgers, exploiters and identity thieves. Notarizing documents is of essential importance and allows important documents to be rendered trustworthy.

There are three different types of notarial acts: certifications, acknowledgments and jurats.

Certified copies are a reproduction of an original document. The authentication process of a copy of the certification is performed to ensure that the duplicate is exact, true and complete. Documents that often require certifications include but are not limited to college degrees and diplomas, passports and other personal papers.

Acknowledgment is performed on documents such as power of attorney and trusts and property deeds. In other words on documents that control and convey ownership of valuable assets. The acknowledgement process requires the signer to appear in person at the time of notarization. Furthermore the individual must be identified as the signer and must then acknowledge that the signature on the document is in fact their own and that it was willingly made. The provisions in the signed document then take effect exactly as they are written.

Evidentiary documents such as affidavits, depositions and interrogatories are crucial for the operation of the civil and criminal justice system and must be authenticated in a process called the jurat. When this process is performed the signer must appear in person to sign the document and take an oath promising that all the statements in the document are true. The signer’s identity must be confirmed prior to him or her signing the document and taking the oath.
