What is a Notary Public?
A notary public is a public official whose powers and duties are defined by statute. A notary acts as an official, unbiased witness to the identity and signature of the person who comes before the notary for a specific purpose. The person may be taking an oath, giving oral or written testimony, or signing or acknowledging his or her signature on a legal document. In each case, the notary attests that certain formalities have been observed.
What is Electronic Notarization?
An electronic notarization is an official act performed by an electronic notary public using their electronic seal and electronic signature on electronic documents.
What is Personal Appearance and Why is it Important?

Personal appearance is a security measure that allows a Notary to verify the signer’s identity. Steps include:

  • Examining the identity documents.
  • Screening the signer for willingness and awareness.
  • Communicating directly with the signer and, in cases of credible identifying witnesses, allowing the Notary to identify them and administer an oath, if necessary.
What are some reasons that might prevent a Notary from notarizing my document?

• All signer(s)/witness(es) are not present in person with the Notary.
• A document has missing pages or blank spaces that affect the document’s intent.
• The signer(s) cannot produce an acceptable ID or is not known personally by the Notary.
• The Notary believes someone altered the document.
• There is no notarial certificate on the document, and the signer cannot tell which notarial act is required.
• The signer and the Notary are not able to communicate with each other.
• The Notary believes the signer does not understand the purpose or consequences of signing.
