Certified True Copies

A certified true is a copy of a document that a notary has verified and certified as a true copy of the original.

There are two types of true copies:

  • a certified true copy is a copy of a document issued by the government office who originally issued the document; and
  • a traditional certified copy, which is a photocopy of a document that is certified by a notary public.

If you need a certified copy of either document type, you must bring the original document and the copy to the notary public. The notary will closely compare the original and copy. Once satisfied that the copy is a true copy, they will verify and certify by dating, stamping, and signing the document as a true copy.

Please ensure you bring valid government-issued photo identification with you to your appointment. Contact us today to get started.
