Non-Attorney Notary Foreign Language Ad Disclaimer On N.Y. Governor's Desk
A bill that would regulate how New York Notaries advertise their services in foreign languages and require them to post disclaimers has been approved by the State Legislature and is on Governor Andrew Cuomo’s desk for his signature.
If signed by the Governor, Senate 5672 would require any non-attorney Notary who advertises in a foreign language to post a disclaimer stating that they are not an attorney and may not give legal advice about immigration or other legal matters. The disclaimer would have to be posted in English and the foreign language used for the Notary’s advertisement.
