It is your responsibility to find out whether or not the documents will need to be notarized.
If the documents are to be translated from English to another language to be used in another country, it is your responsibility to find out if a Form 10 will be needed and if the notary’s signature will need to be authenticated. If this is necessary there will be additional notary charges.
In order to certify the documents to be notarized we must be provided with the original documents.
