At some point in your life, you will need a notary to witness a document. A notary is appointed by the state to act as a third-party witness when signing important documents. A notary will ensure the person signing the document is who they say they are through checking their identification. They have the duty to ensure the person signing the document understands what they are signing, are not being forced to sign, and that no fraudulent act is taking place.
Types of Identification
A notary must certify the identity of the person signing a document. Several types of identification are considered “satisfactory evidence,” when the ID was issued within five years, and include a picture of the individual:
Military ID card
Several other types of state-issued ID cards are also acceptable, or when the individual does not have ID, two credible witnesses may be required to confirm the person’s identity.
When You Need a Notary
A notary may be required when signing specific legal documents, including:
Power of Attorney
Passport Parental Consent
Deed of Trust
Duplicate Title Application
Bill of Sale
