A Notary Public services in non-contentious matters, usually concerned with foreign or international business. The function is mainly to attest the identity and authenticity of signatories and documents. The acts of the Notaries Public have worldwide recognition.
A Notary Public is an officer constituted by law and is empowered to carry out the following services:
- Administer oaths
- Witness or attest signatures on deeds and official documents
- Authenticate documents for use in Ireland or abroad (marriage certificates, powers of attorney, etc)
- Take affidavits (other than for use within the courts in Ireland)
- Take affirmations and declarations
- Receive and make protests under mercantile law (promissory notes and bills of exchange) and issue notarial certificates in respect of documents and persons
- Draw up powers of attorney and other legal documents customarily prepared by Notaries Public
- Assist in matters of admiralty law and ships protests
- Certification in documents for foreign adoptions
- Procure an apostille certificate from the Department of Foreign Affairs verifying the authenticity of documents for use abroad
- Certifying the authenticity of official signatures and/or the official seal applied to a public document under the legalisation procedure
You will need to bring with your two forms of identification, as an important function of a notary is to verify your identity and matters cannot be progressed if there is a deficiency in the documentation submitted concerning your identity.
