What is a Notary Public? 

A notary public is a person cleared by the state government, usually the Secretary of State, to witness the signing of official documents as a way to avoid fraud. Notaries also make sure that those signing understand what they’re signing and are doing so of their own free will.  

What types of forms may need a notary? 

  • Legal documents 
  • Financial documents 
  • Real estate documents 
  • Affidavits  

What do I need to bring with me to see a notary? 

  • Your ID 
  • The IDs of anyone accompanying you 
  • Original copy of the document you need notarized 
  • Payment (if applicable)
