Civil law Notary

Draffing Legal Instruments, Authentication of Legal Instruments and Public Repository of Legal Instruments

Because the civil notary is an attorney, he or she can render legal services in connection with any transaction for which the civil notary is performing the notarial function. However, unlike the common law system in the U.S., the civil law notary is expressly authorized by law to represent the transaction rather than a particular party to the transaction. However, the civil law notary is prohibited from acting as both notary and advocate for a party to the transaction. If the civil law notary drafts the relevant legal document, he or she must make sure that the legal instrument accurately represents the intent of the parties, that the parties understand the legal nature and effect of the instrument and that the legal instrument complies with applicable law. In complex transactions, the parties may each be represented by an attorney and the attorneys work with the civil law notary to draft the legal instrument.
