A true certified copy is a copy of a primary document, that has on it an endorsement made by our notary that certifies it is a true copy of the primary document. It may be required for official government or court purposes and for commercial purposes. It avoids the owner of important documents (especially identity documents) giving up possession of those documents which might mean a risk of their loss or damage. We need the original documents that you can send by post or bring directly to the office.

Here is a non-exhaustive list of documents that can be certified:

Academic transcript l attestation l apostille l birth certificate l certificate l certificate of celibacy l civil status certificate l commercial register l criminal record l death certificate l diploma l driving licence l family certificate l insurance policy l marriage certificate l passport l patent l record l reference letter l registration document l tax return l visa l will l affidavit l audit report l complaint l work certificate l contract l court ruling l divorce decree l insurance contract l marriage contract l order l power of attorney l procedure l regulation l rogatory commission l subpoena l succession l summons l tribunal’s ruling
