Who are Notary Publics? Notary Publics in Mexico are first licensed attorneys in Mexico, then they apprentice in notaryship law and practice with another notary public for a period of time, then pass a notary public examination and thereafter are appointed by the Governor of their state to act as a Notary Public in a given geographical location (a town, a district).
What do they have. Notary Publics are invested with the "public faith" granted by government and can assert this Public Faith in reference to the existence of an event they witnessed, the existence of certain documents, the existence of official acts, the content of a contract, the signature of a party, and as well the due representation of an agent on behalf of a principal. As one can see, their authority is substantial.
