Frequently Asked Questions

Having documents notarized can be a confusing event for someone who is not familiar with the Notary process.  We have listed some general question and answers to our most frequent inquiries.

Q: What do I need to bring to the signing?
A: You will need to bring one of the following forms of approved identification.

  • State Issued Drivers License or ID Card (Canada or Mexico licenses are acceptable)
  • Military ID
  • Passport
  • Inmate ID issued by Department of Corrections
  • Employee ID from an agency or office of the State of California, or by any agency or office of a city, county in California.

Q: Does notarizing a document make it truthful and correct?
A: No.  Notarizing only validates that he signer personally appeared in front of the notary and subscribed or affirmed to the truthfulness of the document.  The Notary Public has no authorization to state that a document is official, true or correct.


Q: I don't have an acceptable ID.  Can I still have a document notarized?
A: In most cases, yes.  Please contact one of our Notaries to discuss your personal situation.


Q: The document I need notarized requires that multiple people sign but we all work different schedules.  Do we all need to be present at the same time?
A: No.  All signers can appear at different times



Q: I was sent a document from out of state.  Can this document be notarized by a California notary?
A: Yes.  California notaries can notarize documents originating from other states.


Q: Can you notarize at my office, jail, hospital, etc?
A: Yes.  We will travel to any location you are comfortable with.
