Notarial Services

If you have dealings abroad as an individual, be it buying or selling an overseas property, getting married abroad or perhaps you are adopting a child internationally, you will need a Notary Public to authenticate documents for use overseas. The lawyer or organisation abroad will expect to see a notary's signature, stamp and seal. 

If you are a business or company who have overseas transactions then you will also likely require notarial services at some point.
