A Notary Public is a public official appointed by the state to certify the authenticity of signatures
Notaries Public have two primary duties:
and copies of documents, to administer oaths and affirmations, and to perform other such acts as are
allowed or required by law. . It is the foremost duty of a Notary to screen the signers for their
true identity, their willingness to sign without duress or intimidation, and their awareness of the
general import of the document. A notary public does not have the authority to carry out his duties
in any state but that in which he was appointed. Because a notary is a public official, he/she is
obligated to serve all persons who request lawful notarial acts during normal business hours.
A notary is not commissioned for the personal convenience of any one employer. The most important
reason for notarizing anything is to protect against fraud.
1. Notarize Signatures
The signer must be in the physical presence of the notary before the notary may lawfully notarize.
This rule of law is not discretionary. The notary certifies that a signature is made willingly and
freely by determining the signer’s state of mind and intent. The notary should refuse to notarize
signatures made under coercion, duress or undue influence. Never take the acknowledgment of a person
who does not speak the English language unless the nature and effect of the instrument to be notarized
is translated into a language which the person does speak.
There are three ways identification can be falsified: By counterfeit, By imposter, By document
alteration. When presented suspicious identification, the notary should refuse to accept it and should
refuse to notarize for that person.
2. Place Under Oath/Affirmation
Jurats are the authentication of a signature made under oath or affirmation. The signer must personally
appear before the notary and be identified by the notary as previously discussed. The notary must place
the signer under oath and then watch the signature being written.
