A notary can attest that a document is a copy of its original.

Notarial Certification

In this certification, a person appears before the notary and signs a document in his presence. Next, the notary asks the signer if the content of the signed is true. The signer must answer verbally in the affirmative. If he lies, he would be committing perjury. Finally, the notary lifts the notarial certification, but does not read the document.

On the other hand, Notaries cannot legally advise, including immigration cases, nor are they authorized to prepare and write legal documents.
