What is Notarization?

Notarization is the official fraud-deterrent process that assures the parties of a transaction that a document is authentic, and can be trusted. It is a three-part process, performed by a Notary Public, that includes of vetting, certifying and record-keeping. Notarization is sometimes referred to as “notarial acts.”

Notarization is a fairly basic process, but it’s an essential one. To be exact, a notary doesn’t certify a document itself. A notary simply officially confirms document signatures and makes certified copies of official, notarized original documents. Typically, this can happen in one of two ways.

In the first instance, you bring both the original document and a photocopy before a notary, then the notary makes a certified photocopy. In the second case, documents are signed directly in the presence of a notary, followed by the notary placing an official seal and his/her signature upon the document itself. Mandeep Saggi at Saggi Law Firm can advice & handle your case to the end.

In many instances, notarizing the document-issuer’s signature is impossibility. That leaves only the photocopy option.
