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.
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.
