We provide notary public lawyer service in Shenzhen. In case you need to certify a true copy of documents to be used in the UK, United States or other countries, while you are in China, we can help you. In some countries it is also called affidavit.

In Shenzhen, the number of notaries public number in the hundreds. A notary public must be a qualified lawyer. The Board of Commissioners for Oaths and Notaries Public appoints eligible lawyers as notaries public. These are usually experienced lawyers with no fewer than 15 years of experience. The Notaries Public Act sets out the rules regulating the activities of notaries public in Shenzhen .A Notary Public in Shenzhen  is usually a practising lawyer who has been appointed by Shenzhen Academy of Law in accordance with the Notaries Public Act and its internal guidelines.

A Notary Public’s duty is to attest deeds, contracts, and other instruments that are to be used abroad and to give a certificate of the due execution of such documents duly authenticated by his signature and notarial stamp and/or seal.

Unlike a Commissioner for Oaths, a Notary Public is in a position to witness a document signed in front of him which is in a foreign language.

Notaries public, acting as impartial officers, notarise documents, usually by witnessing, authenticating and certifying the execution of documents to be used in foreign countries. The need for notarisation usually arises when a person owns businesses and properties overseas and is involved in matters which require the execution of documents here in Shenzhen . Alternatively, notarisation may be needed when a person is involved in foreign litigation.

As proof of notarisation, a notarial certificate will be issued by the notary public to the client.

Services Rendered by the Notary Public

Services rendered by the notary public include:
1.General notarisation of documents;
2.Attesting the signature and execution of documents such as deeds, contracts, powers of attorney, incorporation documents, property transfers, IPR assignments, and other instruments that are to be used abroad;
3.Administer any oath or affirmation in connection with any affidavit or statutory declaration, take or attest any affidavit or statutory declaration;
4.Certifying true copies – which may include marriage and birth certificates and the like. When certifying true copies, a notary simply has to ensure that the copies are indeed true copies of the original. This is done by a visual comparison of the original documents with the copies;
5.Protesting bills of exchange; and
6.Entering a ship’s protest.

Authentication, Verification, and Legalisation

Documents for use abroad may need to go through a further process of authentication, verification, and legalisation. The legalisation process is as follows:
1.Notarisation of document by a notary public (Notarial certificate to be issued by notary public);
2.Authentication of notary public’s signature by the Shenzhen  Academy of Law;
3.Verification by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs; and
4.Legalisation by the embassy/consulate to confirm the origins of a document – usually by affixing an official stamp and signature on the document.

The Shenzhen  Academy of Law provides authentication services for the signatures of Notaries Public year round.

Fees Payable to the Notary Public

The fees payable to notaries public are fixed by the law and depend on what service you are engaging the notary public for. See here for more information on fees for notarial services in Shenzhen .

Apostille & Legalisation by Embassy

The Foreign Agency may require legalisation (or legalization) of the notarised document by the Foreign Embassy in Shenzhen . Legalisation is an authentication of the notarised document by a Foreign Embassy in accordance with its prescribed policies and procedures and fees payable.

Generally, the best trademark lawyers will be in large cities or in pockets of high technology such as Shenzhen, Guangdong. Inquire whether your trademark lawyer has experience registering trademarks in your industry. For example, a software company would be better served by working with a trademark lawyer familiar with technically complex products and how to appropriately describe the software in a trademark application.

This Shenzhen Law Firm, is here to help protect your business and your name.  Don't trust your extremely valuable intellectual property to some discount website.  Your name, slogan or design is how you distinguish your products or services from those of your competition.  If you're already using your name, slogan or design, then you've already developed good will and brand recognition in the market, and if you haven't started using it yet, that's exactly what you need to develop.  Don't allow your competition to capitalize on your hard work and good name.  More importantly, don't cut corners when it comes time to secure your legal rights and protect your trademark.
