For a document to be notarized the signer must provide “satisfactory evidence of identity.”   This translates into (i) at least 1 current document issued by a federal or state government agency bearing the photographic image of the individual’s face and signature, (ii) the oath or affirmation of a credible witness unaffected by the document or transaction who is personally know to the notary public and who personally knows the individual; or (iii) identification of an individual based on the notary public’s personal knowledge of the identity of the principal; provided, however, that for a person who is not a United States citizen, “satisfactory evidence of identity” shall mean identification of an individual based on a valid passport or other government-issued document evidencing the individual’s nationality or residence and which bears a photographic image of the individual’s face and signature.

  • The document must be signed in the presence of the Notary.
  • All signers must be present at the time of the Notarization. 
  • If the document does not contain the appropriate Notarial statement or clause, the Notary shall insert this information. 
  • Non Attorney Notaries cannot conduct a real estate closing and shall not act as a real estate closing agent.
  • A notary public shall not notarize a signature on a blank or incomplete document. 
  • Notary services are not available for wills, deeds, mortgages or any other document that the Notary Public is not comfortable notarizing.
