What is a Notary Public and Why Do You Need One?

(Notaries Secret Weapon)

A notary public plays a crucial role in ensuring the authenticity and integrity of legal documents. According to the National Notary Association (NNA), A Notary Public is an official of integrity appointed by the state government — typically by the secretary of state — to serve the public as an impartial witness in performing a variety of official fraud-deterrent acts related to the signing of important documents.

Here are a few key reasons why a notary public is important:

  1. Verification and Authentication: A notary public verifies the identity of the signers of a document, ensuring that they are who they claim to be. By affixing their official seal or stamp, the notary public confirms that the signatures on the document are genuine and have been witnessed by them. This adds a layer of trust and credibility to the document.

  2. Preventing Fraud and Impersonation: Notaries are trained to detect and deter fraudulent activities. They carefully examine the identification documents presented by the signers, cross-check information, and ensure that the individuals understand the contents of the document they are signing. This helps prevent impersonation and protects against potential fraud.

  3. Legal Compliance: Many legal transactions and processes require the involvement of a notary public to ensure compliance with the law. For example, real estate transactions, wills, powers of attorney, and certain business agreements often require notarization. Without the presence of a notary public, these documents may not be legally valid or enforceable. 

  4. International Recognition: Notarized documents often have international recognition and acceptance. If you need to use a document in another country, having it notarized can help facilitate its acceptance and authentication by foreign authorities or organizations.

  5. Expertise and Professionalism: Notaries public undergo training and are knowledgeable about the specific laws and regulations governing their jurisdiction. They provide professional services and guidance to individuals and businesses, ensuring that legal documents are properly executed and comply with relevant requirements.
