Certificate of Status

Quite often this requires confirmation of personal data such as marriage, divorce or adoption. In some instances it may require to a have a decree absolute notarised or any other English issued court document.

On other occasions it could be that an overseas pension provider or other financial institution requires a Certificate of Life to be notarised. This confirms that at the date of the Certificate a person is still alive and therefore eligible to receive benefits from the pension provider.

Other documents that may require notarisation could be a DBS or an ACRO certificate as part of a job application. At the same time an overseas employer may require that a degree certificate issued by a UK University is notarised. These processes require contacting the relevant issuing authority or institution to confirm that the details contained therein are authentic and valid.
