Here at Parte & Associates we aim to provide you with a highly professional notary public service, whether you require a single document notarised or passport copies made or more complex company documentation for use abroad.
The most common tasks undertaken by a notary are to attest, certify and sign and seal:
- Powers of Attorney and Affidavits
- Certifying documents as true copies for use abroad
- Notarising documents for the purchase or sale of foreign property
- Company documentation for use abroad
- Preparing notarial certificates
- Authenticating personal documents and information for immigration or emigration purposes
- Foreign adoption dossiers
We can arrange apostille legalisation of foreign documents by the Department of Foreign Affairs and assist you with embassy and consulate legalisation.
You will need to bring with you two forms of identification as an important function of a notary is to verify your identity and matters cannot be progressed if there is deficiency in the documentation submitted concerning your identity.

Frequently asked questions
What are your fees?
Our fees range from a nominal statutory charge of €10 when you need a simple affidavit or statutory declaration sworn for use before an Irish Court or registry, to several thousand Euros for large complex corporate transactions.
Our fees are calculated on the basis of the nature and number of documents and the time involved, together with a basic instruction fee and elements in respect of legalisation, translation, foreign languages and any other factors where these apply. We do not issue a sample price list as this could be very misleading: there are many different elements taken into consideration. However, we are very happy to give an estimate of our fees and the costs involved in advance of undertaking any work.
What types of identification are acceptable?
Following the enactment of the Criminal Justice (Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing) Act 2010 on 8 July 2010, notaries are now obliged to keep sufficient evidence on our files of the identity and the address of all our clients before we undertake any work.
From private individual clients, we therefore require one of the following original identification documents at the time of the appointment for each person whose signature we are certifying and for the person who is acting as our client:
- Current Passport
- Driving Licence (with photocard
- National identity card
- Other government issue ID (with photo and signature
In addition, we require proof of residence, which can be one of the following original documents:
- Bank statement or letter
- Utility bill
- Letter of confirmation from a lawyer, accountant, banker or doctor
How long does an appointment take?
Most appointments last for 25 minutes but detailed work may take longer. For example, notarising foreign adoption dossiers may take between 2 and 4 hours.
