Getting Documents Notarized in Edmonton

The Purpose of Having Documents Notarized

Getting documents notarized is often done for several reasons. Notarized documents can be both required by specific statutes (such as the Land Titles Act), or may be required for a specific purpose, including:

  • Proving identity;
  • Swearing oaths, affidavits, or statutory declarations; or
  • Proving original documents.
Appointments for Notarized Documents at Our Law Firm

Our law firm offers two ways of getting documents notarized. We offer service by scheduled appointments or you can just drop in. Drop in notarizing is subject to the availability of one of our lawyers. We are often able to offer immediate drop in service but at times you may need to wait 20-40 minutes. The longest waits are often over the lunch hour as some of our notaries will be out of the office. If you need to come in over your lunch time, it is best to make an appointment or come just before or just after the noon hour for notarizations. Scheduled appointments for notarized documents will save you the wait.

What to Remember for your Notary Appointment

You will be required to bring the following in order to get documents notarized in Edmonton:

  • Bring in one piece of government issued photo ID;
  • Bring in a second piece of ID that is either government issued photo, or with a signature, including credit cards or health care cards;
  • All people who are signing the document must come to the appointment. We cannot notarize a document without being present when the document is signed;
  • Bring in the document to be notarized;
  • Bring in any paperwork that relates to the notarized documents;
  • Please do not sign the document to be notarized before your appointment; and
  • For original true copies, we will need to make a copy of the original document. Please bring in the original.
Types of Notarized Documents

The following are the more common documents that require notarization in Alberta. They are just examples. We would strongly recommend that you review the document that you need notarized before making your appointment. Then let us know. If you need more than one document notarized, then ask about our multiple document discount. Examples of documents that need notarizing are:

  • Affidavits;
  • Statutory declarations;
  • Child travel letters;
  • Notarized copies or certified true copies; and
  • Immigration related applications.
Some Documents Require More Than Notarization

We often get calls from people who want to book an appointment for a notary but really need something else. This happens for a few reasons. Sometimes people do not understand the nature of the documents that they want to bring in to the lawyer. Other times, people think that they will save money by booking a notary appointment instead of some other service. This often delays dealing with the documentation. The most common areas that people book a notary instead of another service include: Certificates of Independent Legal Advice, personal guarantees, separation agreements, out of province transfer of property and cohabitation or prenuptial agreements. While these services do cost more than a notary, it is because there is a lot more work and liability involved. Make sure to let us know what type of document you want to bring in and we can book you an appointment with the appropriate person for the appropriate amount of time. This will save you having to come back for a second appointment.
