A Notary Public is a public servant with statewide jurisdiction authorized to take acknowledgments, protest instruments permitted by law to be protested (primarily negotiable instruments and bills and notes), administer oaths, take depositions, and certify copies of documents not recordable in the public records.
A Notary Public is, in the true sense of the word, “a public servant” and “an officer of the State of Texas”, conveniently located in the community so that the notary may be of service to the public. Each Notary Public takes an official oath of office to faithfully perform the duties of the office and to ensure such performance, a notary public is required to post a $10,000.00 bond with the Secretary of State.
The primary duty of a Notary Public is to show that a disinterested party (the Notary Public) has duly notified the signer of an instrument as to the importance of such document, and the signer of such document has declared that the signer’s identity, signature, and reasons for signing such instrument are genuine. The signature and seal of a Notary Public do not prove these facts conclusively, but provide prima facie proof of them, and allow persons in trade and commerce to rely upon the truth and veracity of the Notary Public as a third party who has no personal interest in the transaction.

Acknowledgment: A formal declaration before an authorized official, such as a notary public, by someone who signs a document and confirms that the signature is authentic. Also, the certificate of the officer on such instrument indicating that the document has been so acknowledged.
Affidavit: A voluntary declaration of facts, written down and sworn to or affirmed by the declarant (“affiant”) before a Notary Public or other officer having the authority to administer an oath.
Affirmation: The act of affirming the truth of a document, not an oath. “I solemnly affirm and declare the foregoing to be a true statement…” Note that an affidavit may appear in two forms: a sworn affidavit with oath, or an affirmed affidavit with affirmation. Each has the same legal import.
Jurat: A certification added to an affidavit or document stating when, where and before whom such affidavit was made.
Oath: A solemn declaration, accompanied by a swearing to God or a revered person or thing, that one’s statement is true or that one will be bound to a promise. The person making the oath implicitly invites punishment if the statement is untrue or the promise is broken.
Protest: A Notary Public’s written statement that, upon presentment for payment or acceptance, a negotiable instrument was neither paid nor accepted.
Verification: A formal declaration by which one swears to or affirms the truth of the statements in a document. Also, the statement of a Notary Public that the person appearing before the notary has been properly identified as being the person purported to be appearing.
A Notary Public Is NOT authorized to practice law or give legal advice. Therefore, advising individuals of legal rights and selecting forms, such as notarial certificates, constitutes a violation of this provision. Clients must select the notarial certificate that they choose to use for their specific purpose.

Apostille/Authentication of Documents
An Apostille is a form of certification set out in the 1961 Hague Convention, to which the United States is a subscriber. The object of the Apostille is to “abolish the requirement of diplomatic or consular legalization for foreign public documents”. The completed Apostille certifies the authenticity of the signature, the capacity in which the person signing the document has acted, and identifies the seal/stamp which the document bears. We at Precision Mediation & Civil Services do not issue the Apostille, the US Department of State has the authority. We do prepare and submit the documentation needed to the proper officials for review and issuance of an Apostille. Authentication Certificates are issued for documents which are destined for use in countries that are not parties to the Hague Apostille Convention.
