FAQ'S, (frequently asked questions):
Q: Who is a Notary Public?
A: Notary Public is a public servant appointed by the provincial government to witness the signing of important documents and administer oaths. In Manitoba, a notary public is usually required to be a lawyer. A Notary Public is a third-party witness to not only the signature of a document but also the fact that all parties who signed did so willingly and under their own power.
Q: What is the difference between a Notary Public and a Commissioner for Oaths?
A: There is a higher standard to qualify as a Notary Public. Documents signed before a Notary Public are valid Provincially, Nationally and Internationally. Whereas documents signed before a Commissioner for Oaths are typically only valid within the Province the Commissioner is licensed in.
Q: Why do we Notarize Documents?
A: You’ve probably had documents notarized, but did you know why? Is there really a purpose or benefit to having a document notarized? Having a Notary Public witness a signature serves as a powerful risk management tool that prevents fraud and identity theft, among others. Documents are notarized to deter fraud and to ensure they are properly executed. An impartial witness (the Notary) identifies signatories to screen out impostors and to make sure they have entered into agreements knowingly and willingly.
Q: Why is Notarization Important?
A: Among the main reasons to have certain documents notarized is to deter fraud. Notarization not only makes it more likely that signatories are who they claim to be but, also it's mandatory for certain documents.
Q: How does a Notary Public identify a Signatory?
A: Generally, the Notary will ask to see a current identification document or card with a photograph, physical description and signature. A driver’s license, military ID or passport will usually be acceptable.
Q: Is Notarization a Legal Requirement?
A: For most documents, yes. Certain affidavits, deeds and powers of attorney may not be legally binding unless they are properly notarized.
With other documents, no. Private entities and individuals may require notarization to strengthen the document and to protect it from fraud.
Q: Does Notarization Make a Document "True" or "Legal"?
A: No. A notarization typically means the signatory acknowledged to the Notary that he or she signed the document or vouched under oath or affirmation that the contents of the document were true.
Q: Can a Notary Public give Legal Advice or Prepare Legal Documents?
A: No. A Notary is forbidden from preparing legal documents or acting as a legal advisor unless he or she has been retained as lawyer. So a Notary cannot answer your legal questions or provide advice about your particular document.
