What is a Notary Public?
As a Notary Public, John Pearce is a person who is recognised by law as having the ability to verify the signing of a deed, certify that copies of documents are authentic, especially for overseas purposes, and witness documents which are for production in another country.

As a Notary, John Pearce holds a unique office of trust and fidelity within the legal system. He is recognised by law as being able to, amongst other things:

  • verify the signing of documents and
  • certify that copies of documents are authentic, particularly when such documents are for use overseas.

John Pearce, as a Notary Public, uses an official stamp and Notarial Seal which are placed on official documents. The Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) retains a copy of his Notarial Seal and signature so that, where applicable for a particular country, DFAT can provide an Authentication or Apostille Certificate as to the authenticity of his signature.
