    Notarize Indian Documents

    Asked Jun 15, 2007, 12:16 PM 8 Answers
    Hi,

    I came to US from India in March 2007. I need to give my signature on some legal Indian documents. For that either it requires my personal presence in India in the Register Office or I should sign this in the presence of a Notary over here, get it notarized and send the documents.

    Please help me in knowing how and where can I notarize my documents? What would be the estimated cost to do this?

    I am resiging in Atlanta and the document is written in English.

    Thanks in Advance,
    Srivatsav Meda

    In Virginia, a Notary can't sign something unless he/she understands the document (i.e. is fluent in the language). That is to protect the signer.

    Are you close to an Indian Embassy that would officiate the document?

    Will the Indian government accept a US notorized document? I have notorized documents for UK citizens, it most likely will depend on the agency that needs the signature.

    It seems the lawyer over there has suggested that since I am in US I should sign the documents in the presence of a Notory. Please let me know what other details should I find out from my lawyer?

    If the lawyer in India is telling you a Notary is sufficient then that should be all you need. A notary is just a disinterested third party that verifies you are who you say you are and that you executed the document in question on a particular date.

    Do you have a bank account? Your bank would most likely have a notary. Fees vary from place to place.

    They are available at the courthouse, some banks and credit unions, check cashing places, mail and parcel centers like the UPS Store usually have someone on staff that is a notary. You can plug your zip code into this and find an MPC that has a notary Neighborhood Postal Centers&reg

    Or look under Notary Public in your yellow pages.

    Cost is probably between $2 to $10 per document. In VA it is $5, but in CA it is $10 (I think) Don't know about GA, sorry.
