What does a notarization entail? As your Notary, I will need to assure that a document is authentic (so proper ID will be required), the signature(s) is/are genuine, that its signer(s) acted without duress or intimidation and that the signer understands what he/she is signing. Some notarization's also require that as the Notary the signer may need to take an oath, declaring under penalty of perjury that the information contained in a document is true and correct.
What is considered proper forms of ID? Before I can notarize your document(s) I will need to ensure proper ID for your protection and to prevent fraud. Proper ID: a photo ID such as a state driver’s license/state ID card, US or foreign passport, Resident Alien ID, US military ID or an employment ID. All ID’s must be current, unexpired.
