Pre-Appointment Check List
  • All signers must appear physically before the notary, be coherent and provide acceptable identification at the time of the notarization.

  • COMPLETELY FILL IN ALL BLANK SPACES IN DOCUMENT BEFORE NOTARY ARRIVES BUT DO NOT SIGN! We cannot Notarize incomplete documents!

  • The name on the document must match the name on the ID. (What if I don’t have an ID or the name on my ID does not match name on the document?)

  • DO NOT SIGN document until you are in the presence of the notary.

  • Original documents must be presented for all Copy Certification.

  • Vital records (birth, death and marriage) cannot be notarized.

  • Know which Notary Certificate you need. Notary cannot give advice on which one to use.
