Notarization Procedures

Before starting a notarization

The following conditions must be met:

 

  • The person whose signature is being notarized is in the presence of the notary public at the time the signature is notarized.

  • The document is filled out and complete.

  • The person signing the document is mentally competent and understands what he/she is signing.

  • The notary is in the State of Florida.

  • The notary is not a party to the transaction – or mother, father, son, daughter, or spouse to the signer.

  • Valid identification must be obtained from each person whose signature is to be notarized. Proper identification is necessary since legal consequences are severe. A redacted copy of the ID may be kept for record keeping purposes. The following examples are good forms of identification:

    • Personal acquaintance of the notary

    • Driver’s license

    • Passport

    • Photo identification card issued (within the past five years) by a state or branch of the federal government

 

A Florida Notary Public CAN NOT:

 

  1. Notarize a document unless the signer personally appears before the notary public at the time of the notarization.

  2. Notarize a document outside the State of Florida

  3. Notarize a signature on a document requiring two signatures unless the notary stipulates which signature is being notarized by indicating such in the acknowledgement.

  4. Notarize a document that has blank spaces therein.

  5. Post date any acknowledgement on a document.

  6. Notarize his or her own signature.
