Can girlfriend notarize my documents?

Postby JPMessina44 » 18 Oct 2010, 14:58

Curious, my girlfriend is a registered notary in the state of NY where 11 of my 13 documents will come from. Do I have to get it notarized by Clerks office or can any registered notary do it?

I, of course, will have everything certified, and get the apostille from the Sec of State....

I was just curious about the notary part.....it's nothing illegal, as she is a registered notary, does it for a living in NY State and city.

ANy thoughts would be great!

I am a notary in CT and I would be able to notarize such documents. I am not familiar with notary rules in NY, but I can't imagine they would be much different.

That's what I was thinking as well. I figured maybe it would be a conflict of interest if we were married and have the same last name, but we do not in this case.

Thanks for your thoughts. I didn't think it matters so long the person is registered and its done legitmately.

If I may inquire, what exactly needs to be notarized?

Will the document also require an apostille? Not all states certify notary's signatures and/or have special requirements for doing so.

I could have sworn I read that the birth, death, and marriage all need to be certified, notarized and apostilled for dual citizenship. if thats not the case, that's great if all I need it to certify and then get the apostille/translation.

As for the documents, it seems as though only the people in my line, I'll need a apostille, and translation....so Me- Father - Grandfather - Great Grandfather....(my mom, greatma and great grandmother) I wont need the translation, apostille, etc. True?
