I am an international nurse. I filled out my application. However, there is something I could not understand it. What should I do to notarize my application?

There is an expiration date of commission!!!! Could you please explain?

Notarised means having the original document viewed by either a justice of the peace, police officer, lawyer and there are others but I'm not sure of them all in your country. They view the original and then stamp and sign your photocopy to say it is a copy of the original. This then makes it a legal document and it can not be altered after it has been stamped and signed.

having something notarized, also is legal proof the signature is really yours and that someone other than

you didn't sign it instead of you (pretending to be you.)

when my husband left his home state and moved here, he had to provide notarized copies of his university transcripts

attesting that the grades and courses he said he had taken/received really had been, before he could be hired to teach on

their faculty.

The people that have official authority to notarize legal documents in the USA are known as notary publics - and have a special seal. There is also a date of expiration of their commission, which they should fill in.

Most legal forms that need to be signed, should be signed in their presence.

Thanks all so much : )
