What Does A Notary Do?

Most legal documents require notarization. When sitting down with a lawyer to set up a document, finalize an existing one, or many other services, Shamika Saves can be there to help with your notary needs. But while there are many ways a notary can help you, what exactly do they do?

  • Witness the signing of legal documents. First and foremost, a notary is someone to seek out when you are in need of an officially ‘notarized’ document. These can include adoption papers, mortgages, prenuptial agreements, and many more. A notary is present during the signing of all official documents and acts as an impartial witness throughout, ensuring that all parties act permissibly.
  • Affirm the state of mind of signers. When signing a legally-binding document, it is important to ensure that all signers of the document are of sound mind. In other words, every person signing the document should be in a normal state of mind and not under coercion or the influence of another person or a substance.
  • Be impartial. Arguably the most important aspect of a notary is that they are impartial. This ensures that no favor is given to any party within a contract and that the process is fair for everyone. This is especially important for cases such as prenuptial agreements, custody decisions, and other potentially divisive cases. A notary should never refuse to serve a person due to gender, race, religion, or any other aspect of a person’s life; anyone can seek the help of a notary and expect fair treatment.
  • Protect against fraud. Another possible task of a notary is to protect against fraud and identity theft. A notary checks the identities of each signer present, ensuring that no identity theft is being committed. Notaries are expected to do a thorough check for everyone present and to swear the validity of the process. A notary is committed to ensuring that each transaction is free from fraud to protect those signing.
  • Administer oaths. Sometimes, a notary may also need to put a signer or signers under oath, meaning that they must legally swear that the information in the document is accurate and true. This can be an important step in preventing fraud, as well, adding an extra layer of protection for everyone involved.

Notaries can also provide other services such as bearing witness to items, handling important legal documents, completing notarial certificates, and other related tasks. Shamika Saves wants to help you with any and all of your notarial needs, so contact us today at 407-930-9570 or info@shamikasaves.com.

Wills and POAs
