  • 1. WHAT IS A NOTARY?
    A notary is a legally commissioned official who acts as an unbiased witness to the signing of legal documents. Examples of such include wills, contracts, power of attorney documents, affidavits, warranty deeds, and more. The purpose of a notary is to prevent fraud by certifying signatures on documents that are bound by law.
  • 2. WHAT DOES A NOTARIZATION LOOK LIKE?
    Tip: Remember to have government ID and documents ready at the notary office. The notary will first verify your identity, then look over the documents that need to be signed. Please make sure you don’t sign your name beforehand! The notary is there to witness your signature. Once identity is verified, the notary will ask you to sign. Afterwards, the notary seal is stamped on the document, and the notary will confirm the date, location, and presence of the signee on the paper. Don’t worry if your document doesn’t have a placeholder for this information, the notary will either attach…
  • 3. MY DOCUMENT ASKS FOR A WITNESS, WHAT DO I DO?
    Witnesses are sometimes required to be impartial signees to the document. This means that spouses, family members, or other parties with interests related to the signee or document proceedings cannot be witnesses to the notarization. If you do not have a witness, we will provide one for you. They will further confirm the identities of the signed individuals and ensure no fraud has occurred.
  • 4. WHAT TYPES OF DOCUMENTS CAN BE NOTARIZED?
    Here at Portland Fingerprinting Co, we see numerous legal documents every day. In order to provide a successful legal validation, it’s crucial to ensure the validity of documents for notarization. Examples of valid documents include deeds, contracts, mortgages, agreements, affidavits, power of attorney, prenups, wills, real estate contracts, and more. However, please note that federally issued documents cannot be notarized. Examples of such include birth, marriage, and death certificates, divorce decrees, and court documents. If you have any questions on whether a document can be notarized, please don’t hesitate to call our office at (xxx) xxx -xxxx.
