Certified Copies in California
A copy certification is performed to confirm that a reproduction of an original document is true, exact and complete. Such originals might include college degrees, passports and other important one-and-only personal papers which cannot be copy-certified by a public record office such as a bureau of vital statistics and which the holder must submit for some purpose but does not want to part with for fear of loss. This type of notarization is not an authorized notarial act in every state, and in the jurisdictions where it is authorized, may be executed only with certain kinds of original document. In California a public notary may only certify a copy of a Power of Attorney. However we can acknowledge (notarize) a signed statement stating that a reproduction of an original document is true, exact and complete. In most cases this will work for individuals needing certified copies of documents from a notary in California.
