What We Do
Steps To Getting Your Documents Notarized:
First, contact us to make an appointment.
You can arrange to come to our office or request our mobile notary to come to you. We prefer appointments to eliminate wait times.
Second, we use the following guidelines to notarize your document:
>You must present a valid ID.
>You must bring the entire document, not just the signature page to be notarized.
>The document must have an oath or acknowledgement language on it.
These are adequate forms of ID to bring:
>A current foreign passport
>A current US Passport
>A Permanent Resident Card or “Green Card”
If you do not have these forms of ID, other acceptable IDs must have these 4 elements:
>It has a number assigned by that agency.
>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. If a signer does not have a photo ID, then he/she will need two witnesses present who can swear to his/her identity in order to be certified. The oaths of the affirming witnesses are satisfactory evidence for certification.
What Documents Can Be Notarized
Undated documents can 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. However, 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.
