Carl Parslow

Notary Public

Notary – Department Head


Carl was appointed a notary public in 2005, and offers notarial services to both private and corporate clients in Jersey.

  • Administering oaths, affidavits, sworn statements and statutory declarations

  • Authenticating the contents of documents


Notarial services for individuals

The fundamental role of a Jersey Notary is to provide proof of documents, transactions and facts to the satisfaction of authorities overseas.

For individuals, this will usually involve dealing with the requirements of lawyers or others overseas who have advised that you need to get a document notarised or legalised.

Our notarial services ensure that the documents you sign are done so in your best interests and are legally acceptable in court. We’re also happy to explain the different legal jargon used so you can understand exactly what you’re signing.

Our services include:

  • Witnessing your signature on documents for use outside of Jersey.
  • Witnessing powers of attorney, enabling the appointment of representatives from overseas to help you buy or sell your property outside of Jersey.
  • Taking oaths, affidavits and statutory declaration verifications, and certifying copies of your academic qualifications in support of applications to work overseas.
  • Proving your identity to bank officials or governmental agencies
  • Witnessing your Consent to travel for children.

Notarial services for business

Our notary services provide proof of documents, transactions and facts to the satisfaction of authorities or companies overseas. We can assist you with all your corporate notarial requirements and with Jersey legalisation too.

Our services include:

  • Confirming that documents have been duly executed by Company officers.
  • Taking oaths, affidavits and statutory declarations.
  • Confirming that documents for use in Limited liability partnership structures are duly executed.
  • Witnessing powers of attorney to enable the appointment of representatives overseas.
  • Swearing Affidavits by company officers for foreign courts Certifying true copies of company documents.

Legislation/Apostille services

Legalisation services verify the signature and seal of a notary (or other public officer) on a document. This provides evidence to a destination country that the notary is legitimate.

Each jurisdiction will have its own specific legalisation/apostille requirements. If required, Parslows can assist with legalisation requirements both in Jersey and the United Kingdom.

Preparing for notarisation

While each and every notarial instruction is likely to be different, our notaries will require the following information and documentation from you:

  • The instruction correspondence and supporting documentation. This is usually from the person who prepared the notarial document or needs the notarial document to be notarised, explaining the nature of the document and the legal requirements of the recipient country.
  • For business applications, you’ll need verification details of the company entering into a transaction. This may involve the resolution appointing and authorising a director or another person to undertake a particular transaction.
  • For personal applications (or where you appear on behalf of a company), we will require a current valid passport and two utility bills showing your current address (dated within the last three months).

Our notaries will also discuss additional requirements when you apply. We’ll need to see enough evidence that you have authority to enter into the notarial act before we can help you.
