The signer(s) being notarized must be present at the time of the notarization.
The signer(s) must have a government-issued photo ID that covers the names shown on the document (for example, if your middle name is spelled out on the document, it must be spelled out on your photo ID). The ID can have more than the document, just not less. The actual identification must be shown to the notary, not a photocopy or a picture. If the ID is expired, it must have been issued less than five years ago.
You must bring the document that is to be notarized. A Notary is not permitted to draft documents or provide legal advice. We can, however, print the document for you that you email to us (see Pricing and Payment section). Note: Please try to print the documents at least 1 hour before the Mobile Notary arrives so that you have time to warn us if you have trouble printing and to give you time to proofread the document, especially making sure the name on the document is spelled correctly and checked against the signer’s ID. The ID can have more of the name than what is on the document, but not less. It is okay to use a commonly known nickname on your documents, like Jim for James (where “James” is on the ID, but document says “Jim”).
Every signer must show a government-issued photo identification (if expired, issued not more than five years ago).
