What You Will Need for General Notarizations?

The primary duty of a notary public is to verify the identities of each signer on a document. This is done to protect against fraudulent acts that may otherwise void the notarized document. The notary public typically requests each signer to provide identification that verifies their identity. If the client fails to provide an acceptable form of identification, the notary public is legally obligated to refuse the service.

Every signer must show valid (not expired) photo identification. All identification must contain a photo, a physical description, a signature and a serial number. California recognizes the following types of identification if issued within the last 5 years:

State Issued Driver's License

State Issued ID Card (Senior ID, Under 18 ID, CA ID)

U.S. Passport

U.S. Military ID Card

Mexican or Canadian Driver License

Foreign Passport

The job of a notary public may seem easy enough, but they are responsible for performing several crucial duties to ensure the document’s execution is performed correctly and according to federal and state laws. These duties include verifying the signer’s identify and ensuring the document is signed without coercion.

Every signer must demonstrate a willingness to sign the documents without coercion. He/she must also be aware of what they are signing and understand the significance of the transaction. Documents cannot be notarized if there is any cognitive impairment.
