Re: Texas AAN conflicts with state law re: certifying documents
Posted by  JanetK_CA of CA on 7/7/24 8:01pm Msg #648806
I can't speak for Texas notary law, but it sounds like you're aware the Copy Certification forms the NNA created are not the same as certifying a copy. In those cases, the notary is merely notarizing a statement made by the signer (usually a jurat, so under oath) regarding the document it's attached to or written on. So the only one certifying to anything is the signer, not the notary.

FWIW, the Copy Certification by Document Custodian forms can be found on the internet, so no need to be an NNA member to get one. And there's no magic in the wording used there. It's just an example. I've often had the signer write out a statement in their own words describing what they need. (My state only allows copy certification of Powers of Attorney documents and copies of our journal.) I don't ever provide these documents to signers myself because, in my state at least, that could be considered unauthorized practice of law.

The bottom line for every notary is to make sure that whatever certificate we use is compliant with our own state law. I wouldn't base that on either the Texas AAN or the NNA, but on your own state's authority on notary issues, e.g. the SOS.
