Should you wish to buy properties, set up a business, or get married in China, statutory declarations and certifications of many documents are required for them to be valid there.
Why AHL legal?
AHL Legal has professional lawyers in its team who are familiar with China’s public notaries and maintain frequent contact with the Embassy of the People’s Republic of China.
We are the leading provider of notarized documents for use in China, and the Chinese Embassy holds our firm in trust and high regard. Our strong reputation amongst Chinese Notaries and Embassies stems from our efficiency and experience. We notarize a large quantity of documents systematically, and they are always of impeccable quality.
Importance of local knowledge
Choosing a law firm that knows the difference in rules between different cities and levels of local government in China will save you a lot of frustration. It can mean the difference between getting your business done smoothly, or losing valuable time and money.
For example, the required formats of certified documents are different between Shanghai and Beijing. If a public notary unfamiliar with the situation notarizes your documents in the Shanghainese format for Beijing, inevitably it will have to be redone (for another fee) because the local authorities will not recognize them.
Our offices in China
At AHL legal, however, we are familiar with the differences and tailor your documents to suit the local government’s needs. We have offices in Beijing and Shanghai, and they can act as your agent to perform various functions in China.
With our professionalism and knowledge of the Chinese system, we are your best choice to help you navigate all public notary requirements for your business in China with ease.
Our registered Public Notaries will notarise the following:
Powers of Attorney
• Land and property disposal or transfer
• Corporations and business
• Witnessing documents and authenticating identity

Marriage status certificate
For an Australian citizen to marry a Chinese citizen, a marriage status certificate must be notarized and presented to the Chinese authorities. AHL Legal will notarize your Australian Marriage status certificate and forward it to the Australian Foreign Office and Chinese embassy, and by the end of the process your certificate will be fit for use in China.
