Notarial Acts in the US

signed notarial papers

Some acts may need to be notarized to be accepted officially. Notarization of a deed proves that it is legal and individuals or parts have given their consent for this act. Additionally, those registered notaries are particularly authorized by the government/state for this kind of actions.

The number of authorized notaries per provinces in Turkey is decided by the population of the area they work for. In the US, on the other hand, notaries are appointed by the state authorities. In 32 states, filling out a form and paying a specific fee are the only necessary steps to become an authorized notary; however, there are stricter steps and tests in other 18 states. The reason why the system is more tolerant in the US is that notaries have relatively less legal authorization. For example, a notary cannot provide consultancy service, prepare a document or tell individuals how a report can be made or what kind of materials they need to develop.

– Banks
– City/Province administration buildings
– Some law firms
– UPS offices
– FedEx offices

It is also possible to find a notary in places such as travel agencies, real estate agencies or insurance agencies. Though there is no obligation of being a customer of those agencies for notarial services, they are only approval officers. As previously stated, they are not authorized to prepare documents or provide consultancy.

When Do You Usually Need a Notary Approval for a Document?

Notary approval for a document in the US is different from Turkey both legally and practically.

Notary approval is an obligation for almost all acts in Turkey; however, in the US there is no such obligation for many acts. Support of a document in a notary is practically significant because the legal system is transparent and all actions are monitored strictly.

For example when you sign a new agreement for your business. Even though signatures of parts make an agreement binding, the validity of these signatures should also be verified as legal protection against problems that may occur afterward. Regarding the law, notary approval protects you and your business against identity thefts and other frauds.
