What you will need to notarize a document
To prepare for document notarization, there are a few important things that you need to have on-hand. First, you need the document itself, as the notary needs to review and verify the notarial certificate before proceeding with the notarization process. Second, you need a government-issued photo ID so the notary can verify your identity, such as a valid driver’s license or passport.
On the day of your notary appointment, bring the document and your ID with you. The notary will review the document to ensure that the notarial certificate is complete and correct, then they will ask you to confirm that the contents are accurate. Afterwards, the notary will ask you to sign the document in front of them and apply a thumbprint [if required].
Basic notary requirements
A notary requires at least the following:
- A copy of the document you want to sign and have notarize
- A government-issued photo ID, such as valid driver’s license or passport
- All witnesses present [as needed] with a government-issued photo ID present.
Special considerations for hospital notarizations
A Public Notary considers the following special circumstances in their notarial process for hospitalized patients:
- Are they able to appear in person?
- Are they competent and willing to sign?
- Can they sign their name without assistance?
- Are they under duress or pressure from another party to sign?
Completing the document notarization process
After the notary verifies all requirements, they will then affix their official seal or stamp onto the document, which includes their signature, date, and any other required information such as the location and time.
