Massachusetts Notarial Certificate – Copy Certification

In some cases, a copy of a legal document must be notarized in order to prove it is an exact and accurate copy. A Massachusetts copy certification is a notarial certificate that can be attached to the document in question and presented to a notary public for inspection. The notary must ensure that the copy is in fact a true, exact, complete, and unaltered replica of the instrument before inscribing their signature and affixing their seal on the certificate.
