Here’s how you get a document notarized and what you need to bring or have:
#1: The Document
It should go without saying, but you can’t expect a notary public to perform the desired notarial act unless you bring him or her the document.
But if you really want your notarization to go quickly, there are a few things you can do to make the process easier.
For instance, you can have all of the necessary fields filled out except the signature. This allows you to come to your appointment, sign the document quickly, and be on your way.
Just make sure you don’t accidentally sign anywhere. Most notarial acts require the signer to sign the document in the physical presence of the notary, so hold off on signing your document until you reach the notary’s office.
One of the primary duties of a notary public is to verify the signer’s identity to prevent fraud and forgeries. This is particularly important for sensitive financial documents like grants and wills.
And the only way to do that is to require a certified form of identification as a part of the notarization process.
That’s why it’s essential to bring you ID with you – and to make sure your notary will accept it.
And to make things a bit more complicated, acceptable forms of identification for notaries varies depending on the notary’s state of commission.
ID REQUIREMENTS: The following types of identification are recognized and accepted in the state of California. Identification must be current and issued within the last five years. Expired ID cards will not be accepted. Primary ID cards must have a photo, physical description, signature and identification number.
#4 All parties involved
Not all notarizations are for one person’s signature. For many documents (especially binding contracts), you’ll need multiple signatures that have to be notarized.
While it’s possible to have each signature notarized separately – and even by different notaries – it’s not convenient. You’ll also be on the hook to pay notary fees for every signing.
That means the easiest – and probably cheapest – way to get your document notarized is to have all parties present for the signing. Your document will be 100% signed and notarized with minimum hassle.
- (Optional) Mobile Notary Services
Rather than commuting to our office, a mobile notary will come to you and perform the service. The only catch is that mobile notaries are allowed to charge more than standard notaries, so keep this in mind when deciding whether or not it’s the right choice. A deposit of $25 is required at time of appointment for all mobile services.
You should also remember that a mobile notary will need a scheduled time and location in advance – so plan accordingly.
Even if you choose to hire our mobile notary, you should still gather your document, have an acceptable form of identification on hand, be ready to pay the notary, and have everyone ready to sign.
Notary Public service is available at this location or as a mobile service.
