The Role of a Notary Public
Before delving into the specifics of finding a Chinese-speaking notary public, let’s briefly review the role of a notary public. A notary public is a public official who can notarize a document. Their primary role is to verify the authenticity and signing of important documents like a will, trusts, power of attorney, deeds, estates, contracts, licenses, loan documents, and affidavits.
They witness the signing of essential documents and verify the signer’s identity, their knowledge of the contents in the document or transaction, and their willingness to proceed with signing the papers.
