We offer a wide array of services at Kahane Law Office in Edmonton, Alberta. In addition to our regular services, we offer other legal services to satisfy your needs.

Act as a Notary Public
If you need to swear affidavits or statutory declarations on documents, bring them to our office so we can act as your notary public. And if you need to have the documents themselves prepared, we also offer a drafting service. Please note: we aren’t able to give legal advice about foreign jurisdictions but frequently draft these kinds of documents for use in Alberta. If you’re in a hurry, we can offer same-day appointments. Read more about our notary services.
Act as a Commissioner for Oaths
When you need to swear affidavits or statutory declarations on documents, bring them to our office so we can act as your Commissioner for Oaths. In most cases, a lawyer in another city prepares the document. Other times, a bank or financial institution prepares the documents. But if you need a document prepared, we can draft it for you. We can offer same-day appointments for Commissioner of Oaths services but you can also stop by our office in Edmonton without an appointment.
Give Independent Legal Advice
Some businesses may require you to meet with a lawyer to ensure you understand the responsibilities, obligations and rights – or the loss of the above – you are taking on in an agreement. This requirement is known as independent legal advice (ILA). Understanding your rights necessary to protect yourself and to confirm you’ve met with a lawyer to learn about your rights and obligations in a particular situation or specific contract. Getting ILA means you cannot claim later that you were not aware of what you were signing. Read more about our ILA services.
Notarize Child Travel Letters
If you’re a parent who’s considering traveling outside of the country with your child(ren) and without your spouse (without regard to your legal marital status), you should have a Child Travel Letter signed and notarized to avoid delays and problems at border crossings, be it at Canadian or foreign borders. A Child Travel Letter also allows you to make emergency medical decisions while traveling with the child(ren), if the need arises. Don’t get delayed, miss a flight or be detained. Let us help you with a Child Travel Letter today. We offer same-day appointments, if you’re in a rush. Read more about Child travel letters.
An Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) is a number used when someone, other than an American taxpayer, needs to file tax-related documents in the U.S. If you’re a Canadian who needs to file a U.S. tax return or are subject to a U.S. withholding tax, you need an ITIN if you’re not eligible for a U.S. Social Security Number.
Kahane Law lawyers are authorized as Certifying Acceptance Agents by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to provide Certifying Acceptance Agent services on behalf of our Canadian clients. We provide this service to facilitate the application process leading to the IRS issuance of ITINs. We can also complete and submit Form W7 on our clients’ behalf, and we can complete ITIN renewals.
PLEASE NOTE: Except under special appointment, we only offer these services out of our south office.
Provide Signing Agent Services

If you’re transacting in foreign jurisdictions and can’t, or don’t want to, attend in that jurisdiction, you may sign (execute) any documents for that transaction at our office. We will certify that we’ve collected the proper identification and can courier all paperwork to the required province or country. Learn more about our signing agent services for out-of-city, province and country signings. We are pleased to offer same-day appointments.
