What Are True Copies of An Original?
Documents are commonly required by the Canadian government and various governments as well as international organizations for various legal reasons. Of course, keeping a copy of the original is usually required and thus submitting the original is impractical. Accordingly, governments and organizations will accept notarized copies as Certified Copies of the original documents.
What Does Certified Copies Mean?
Certified copies of documents are those copies that are sworn to in front of a notary who then attest with a notary seal and signature to confirm that the copies are a genuine true likeness of the original documents. While a notary attests to the true likeness of the copy, the notary is unable to attest to the truth or accuracy of the content of the documents. The notary confirms only that the copy is a true copy of the original.
These documents for certification by a notary public may be required for a variety of reasons, (i.e. immigration, permanency residence visa paperwork, to prove authenticity of the document in a legal situation, etc). NotaryNow can certify copies of your original for both international and domestic purposes. While singular multi page documents will suffice with one seal/signature, images and identification images are separately and individually certified.
Kindly book an appointment and bring both the original document as well as true likeness copies. While its better for you to bring your copies for attestation with you, Notary.Legal has the ability to provide copy services at additional fees. Notary.Legal will certify true likeness copies in either colour or black/white. Nonetheless, it is best to confirm the requirements and stipulations from the recipient organization or person, to who the documents will be sent.
