3. The Notary Public will give no assurances in advance that your substitute document of identification will be acceptable.
4. If your passport number is given in the document to be notarised, then the passport must be produced, without exception.
5. If any other identifying detail is given in the document to be notarised (such as Identity Card number or tax number), then whatever document proves that other detail must also be produced.

Notary Public – Cork

A notary public is someone who has been appointed by the state to authenticate legal documents and verify the identity of the document’s signer(s). Notaries can be individuals such as lawyers or government officials.

Notarisation (the process of getting your document signed by a notary public) helps prevent fraud by ensuring individuals authenticate their documents before they can be used. It can also help confirm that the signer intended to sign the document and wasn’t pressured into doing so (e.g. through undue influence, coercion or duress, etc.), similar to signing your document in front of a witness.

Notary publics can also do a number of other tasks, such as:
1. Confirm the identities of the participating parties
2. Witness signatures between them
3. Sign off on the validity of the agreement 

For some documents, Notarisation is the first step, in which a notary will certify the document in a certain way, depending what is required. They may, for example, certify a person’s signature on the document to prove that the person signing is the person named in the document.

FOREIGN LANGUAGE DOCUMENTS


Please further note the Department of Foreign Affair will only put an Apostille on a document in English – if the document you require an Apostille on is in another language you will need to have the same translated by an official translator prior to having the document Notarised.

The Notary will question you as regards your understanding of the nature and purpose of the document and will not notarise it if you cannot give the Notary that assurance.

This is to protect you and the Notary in case the language of the document or the practice of the country in which the document is to be used would suggest that the Notary is doing or saying more than either you or the Notary understand to be the case.

If you live in a state where foreign document translation must precede the notarization, you should get it translated now.  You cannot rely on machine translations for legal documents. Not only do they make costly errors, but they don’t give you certified copies and can thus not hold up for legal purposes.

Instead, to ensure that you do not suffer delays or get turned back due to poor translation, you should only entrust this task to professional translation services. They are fast, efficient, understand the nuances of different dialects, and ensure that your notarization goes through.

Not all important forms and documents require notarisation.

They may, for example, certify a person’s signature on the document to prove that the person signing is the person named in the document. Alternatively, they may certify that the document is authentic or that it is a true copy of an original document that the notary has seen.
