Who We Are

Atlanta Notaries has been in business for over 20 years serving the Atlanta community.  We have experienced notary publics on staff to notarize all types of personal and business documents. Our goal is to offer you accurate, professional and quick service so that you can go on with your day.

What We Do

A notary is an agent for the State of Georgia who witnesses signatures on all types of documents. Our most requested service is the administrating of oaths and taking acknowledgments under Georgia notary laws on documents. An acknowledgment is a person’s sworn statement that he/she signed a document of his/her own free will.  We verify a signer’s identity, sign the document, and apply an ink stamp or embossed seal.

Steps To Getting Your Documents Notarized

First, contact us to make an appointment.

We prefer appointments to eliminate wait times. You can arrange to come to our office or request our mobile notary to come to you.

Second, we use the following guidelines to notarize your document

>You must sign in the presence of the notary public.
>You must bring the entire document, not just the signature page to be notarized.
>A notary must ensure the document is dated the same day as the notarization or earlier, but never later.
ou must present a valid ID.

These are adequate forms of ID to bring:

>A current Georgia driver’s license or identity card
>A current foreign passport

>A current US Passport
>A current driver’s license or identity card issued by another state, a US territory, Canada or Mexico
>A Permanent Resident Card or “Green Card”

If you do not have these forms of ID, other acceptable IDs must have these 4 elements:

>The card or document is issued by a government agency.
>It has a number assigned by that agency.

>It has a picture of the holder.
>It has the signature of the holder.

Social security cards, birth certificates, check cashing cards, credit cards, and immigration cards are not suitable for identification.  A signer who does not have a photo ID will need two witnesses present who can swear to his/her identity to be certified. The oaths of the affirming witnesses are satisfactory evidence for certification.

What Documents Can Be Notarized

For a document to be notarized, it must contain (1) language committing the signer in some way; (2) an original signature from the document signer; and (3) notarial certificate language, which can appear in the document itself or in an attachment.

Undated documents cannot be notarized. If the document has a space for a date, it should either be filled in or marked through. If the document does not have a space for a date, the signer may date it next to his or her signature or mark.

A document can be notarized when the signer is hospitalized or in a care-home facility. The notary will make every effort to ensure that the signer is not incapacitated and that the signer understands what they are signing.

Faxes and photocopies can be notarized only when the document bears an original signature.

What Documents Cannot Be Notarized

A Georgia notary cannot certify a photocopy of a birth, marriage or death certificate. If you need a certified copy of any of these certificates, you should contact the State Office of Vital Records or the County Clerk’s office in the county where the certificate was issued. For foreign certificates such as Consular Reports from Abroad, you will need to contact the consulate of the country in which the person was born, married or died.  Lastly, notary publics cannot notarize federally-issued documents. Examples of such documents are FBI Criminal History Reports, Certificates to Foreign Governments, Patent Trademarks and other documents.

If you are unsure, please contact us to discuss the type of document that you have, and we will let you know if we can help you.
