What can Texas Notary's Notarize?

Notaries play a crucial role in legal and administrative processes by verifying the authenticity of documents and the identity of the individuals involved. However, it's essential to understand that notaries in Texas, like in most states, have limitations on what they can notarize. Let's explore what notaries can and cannot notarize in the Lone Star State.

What Notaries Can Notarize in Texas:

  1. Acknowledgments: Notaries can notarize documents that require an acknowledgment. An acknowledgment is a formal declaration by a person that they have signed a document voluntarily. Common documents requiring acknowledgments include deeds, mortgages, and powers of attorney.

  2. Jurats: Notaries can notarize documents that require a jurat. A jurat is a written statement confirming that the person signing the document did so in front of the notary and swore to its truth. Examples of documents requiring a jurat include affidavits and sworn statements.

  3. Oaths and Affirmations: Notaries can administer oaths and affirmations when a person needs to make a solemn promise or commitment. This is often done for affidavits or statements made under penalty of perjury.

  4. Certified Copies: Notaries can make certified copies of documents, such as diplomas or identification cards, to verify their authenticity. The notary will compare the original document to the copy and confirm that it is a true and accurate reproduction.
