Have you ever sought to get Powers of Attorney, wills, deeds, contracts, or other documents witnessed? Have you struggled to find the appropriate services if you live in a country town? Even If you live in greater Sydney, NSW, the problem can be amplified if you deal with an overseas organization. An Australian Notary Public can witness documents, administer oaths, and perform a range of national and international administrative functions. The person is appointed for life by a State or Territory Supreme Court. Under the Public Notaries Act 1997 (NSW) and the Public Notaries Appointment rules 1998, If you are a practicing solicitor in New South Wales with a minimum of 5 years of experience, you are eligible to apply to the NSW Supreme Court to be appointed a Notary Public. Prospective applicants must complete the Notarial Practice Course and apply through the Legal Profession Admission Board. A Notary can then become a member of the Notaries Association. If you are looking for a Public Notary to perform a service for you, the Society of Notaries of New South Wales Inc provides a helpful website. The website will help you find a notary and gives further information about what you need to know before your appointment and what fees you can expect to pay. The society assists individuals but is also available to assist a Government department or other institution as required. There are several menu options if you are looking for a notary public on the Society of Notaries website. Use the menu options to search by region or by foreign language.
