Seeing a notary is often essential if you want to validate your business or personal documents for international use. Depending on the target country, you may need notarisation, an apostille, FCO Certificate or legalisation.
The specialised knowledge gained by Notaries from their training and practical experience is invaluable when dealing with documents relating to overseas transactions or litigation.
Notaries are by far the oldest branch of the legal profession in this country. The work of the English Notary has been almost exclusively dedicated to the preparation and authentication of deeds and other documents for use abroad. The English Notary intervenes not when this is required by domestic law as is the case in most countries, but when it is required by the laws and procedural rules of the jurisdiction in which the document is to take effect.
As a Notary Public, Fiona Spinks is able to authenticate documents for use overseas. Her experience enables her to help and advise clients on the requirements of the receiving country for the proper execution of the document. Fiona works on the assumption that deadlines are tight and aims to react to her clients’ instructions within the shortest time possible.
