Notary Public

In the US, a Notary Public is approximately equivalent to a Commissioner for Oaths in the UK. The big difference (as you will know if you have paid a Commissioner for Oaths in the UK) is the price.

Americans do seem to be very keen on documents (especially contractual agreements) being Notarized.

ExportAction has an in-house Notary Public and there is a $10.00 fee for each document notarized. (Compare that with the costs of a Commissioner for Oaths in the UK!)
