In the U.S., a notary provides legal verification of an individual's signature in business and legal transactions. In foreign countries, a notary does the same, but often has broader powers. Many countries require notaries to be trained in law, some require notaries to be lawyers also, and some have different types of notaries whose authority to certify certain documents depends on their training. For example, a foreign notary might prepare legal documents, do a title search, certify title, translate documents, certify translations, and file and register documents with government authorities. Foreign notarial fees are commonly higher than those in the U.S. because of the extended services provided.
