What Is a Notary Public?

A notary public is an individual who observes the signing of documents as an impartial third party. One of the primary and most crucial purposes of a notary public is to prevent fraud and to verify that all involved parties are who they say they are. Another important function of a notary public is to ensure that all parties involved in the signing of a document are doing so willingly. Notarization is a process that involves three steps. The first of these steps is to screen or vet the identity and the willingness of the signers. The second step is to make a record of the details associated with the notarization. These details are generally documented in a journal. The third step is certification. This should include the notary’s signature and their seal. It’s important
to understand that specific notarization rules may vary by state.

What Does a Local Notary Public Do?

Notaries often perform several different types of notarial acts. You may need a local notary to witness the signing of important documents ranging from trusts to powers of attorney. In some areas, if you need to get a new title for your car, you’ll need to find a notary for when you need to sign the old one. This is the most common form of notarial act and is called an acknowledgment. When a signer speaks an oath or pledge attesting to the truth of their document at the time when their document is signed, this type of notarization is called a jurat.
