Emma Mead is a Notary Public and can assist you in a range of services.

An Australian Notary Public is a public officer, usually a practising solicitor, who has been appointed ­ by a State or Territory Supreme Court to perform a range of functions.

You may have heard of a Justice of the Peace (JP) before. JPs ­ provide similar services to Notaries but are not authorised to witness documents for use in other countries. Only Notaries have this exclusive right.

So what does a Notary Public actually do?

Emma can:

  • Verify documents for use in Australia and overseas countries
  • Witness signatures to contracts, powers of attorney, affidavits and statutory declarations, for use in Australia and overseas countries
  • Administer oaths for Australian and foreign documents

If you or someone you know needs assistance from a JP or Notary Public, contact Emma Mead. You can contact her on 1300 292 700 or email office@burkemeadlawyers.com.au. There are scheduled fees for these service, dependent on the documents to be notarised
