FAQs asked of a Notary Public
What is the purpose of a Notary Public?
A Notary Public is a person of integrity who is appointed to act as an impartial witness to the signing of an important transaction and to perform a notarial act, which validates the transaction. A Notary’s primary purpose is to prevent fraud and forgery by requiring the personal presence of the signer and satisfactorily identifying the signer.
What type of identification is acceptable?
An ID card should be issued by a state or federal government, must contain a photograph and signature of the person and physical description of the presenter/signer.
Can you notarize a photograph?
No. I cannot. This is not an authorized duty of a notary. An alternative would be to notarize the signature of a person who is willing to certify the authenticity of the photograph in a sworn statement.
