How Do I Get My Document Notarized?

Updated: Aug 16, 2023

The process of getting something notarized typically involves the following steps:

  1. Locate a Notary Public: Find a qualified notary public in your area. Notaries can be found at banks, law offices, postal services, or through online directories.

  2. Schedule an Appointment: Contact the notary public to schedule an appointment that is convenient for both parties. Some notaries offer walk-in services, while others prefer appointments to ensure availability.

  3. Gather the Required Documents: Bring the document(s) you need to have notarized. Ensure that all necessary fields are completed, but do not sign the document beforehand.

  4. Provide Identification: When meeting the notary, bring acceptable identification documents, such as a driver's license, passport, or government-issued ID card. The notary needs to verify your identity to proceed with the notarization.

  5. Sign the Document in Front of the Notary: In the presence of the notary, sign the document as required. Do not sign the document in advance, as the notary must witness the signature.

  6. Oath or Affirmation: In some cases, the notary may administer an oath or affirmation to ensure that the information provided in the document is true and accurate. You may be asked to swear an oath or make a solemn affirmation.

  7. Notary's Certification: The notary will complete the notarial certificate on the document, which typically includes the notary's signature, seal, and other required information, such as the date and location of the notarization.

  8. Payment of Notary Fees: Pay the notary fees as agreed upon. The fees vary depending on the jurisdiction and the type of document being notarized.

  9. Receive the Notarized Document: Once the notary has completed the notarization process, you will receive the notarized document. The notary's seal and signature on the document indicates its notarial status.

It's important to note that the specific requirements and procedures may vary depending on your jurisdiction and the type of document being notarized. Feel free to contact us at Izzy's Notary Services for any additional requirements or questions!
