A Notary Public is an individual appointed and commissioned by the Secretary of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Notaries as a public official have been granted powers pursuant to the Notary Public Law of 1953, as amended (57 P.S. § 147 et seq.) such as administering oaths and affirmations, taking affidavits and sworn verifications, taking acknowledgements, issuing certifications, taking depositions, and issuing protests of dishonored negotiable instruments.

Notaries are not empowered to give legal advice (unless the notary is an attorney licensed by the state to practice law). This includes explaining to the customer what to say in an affidavit or affirmation, interpreting or explaining the documents, or telling the customer what forms are used. A Notary Public is also not allowed to draft legal documents, such as wills, deeds, or contracts.
