A notary public is a certified state officer appointed by the state to perform the duties required to notarize documents. He acts as a third party who witnesses and certifies that the documents are genuine so that they can be produced in the court. There are other services which can also be performed by the notary public such as administering an oath, acknowledgments and jurats.
It is necessary to keep in mind that the notary public is not authorized to provide legal services. Those who are in need of such services must contact an attorney who is qualified to give advise on legal matters. The notary supplies are available from various online stores and can be personalized to serve many different purposes. To name a few, these can be used as expiration stamps, jurats stamps and acknowledgment stamps. (more…)
