A notary public is appointed by the state to act as an impartial witness to prevent fraud during the signing of a document. His or her job is to ensure that you are actually you, the person signing the
document; that you are not being forced into signing; that you understand what it is that you are signing; and sometimes even to administer an oath. Their presence is meant to prevent disagreements about the legitimacy
of a signature and to protect people from being taken advantage of.
We are bonded and covered with errors and omissions insurance that provides additional protection for you.
A Mobile Notary is available by appointment to come directly to the signer, especially for the purpose of convenience."I need this notarized" is one of the most common requests heard from signers. But signers often don't realize there is more than one kind of notarization. They need to know the difference between common notarial acts in order for the notary to perform their duties properly.
The purpose of an acknowledgment is to ensure that the signer of a document is who they claim to be and has voluntarily signed the document. Acknowledgments often are needed for documents concerning valuable assets, such as deeds, mortgages and deeds of trust. To perform an acknowledgment, the signer must personally appear before you at the time of notarization to be positively identified and to declare — or "acknowledge" — that the signature on the document is their own and that they signed willingly.
The purpose of a jurat is for a signer to swear or affirm that the contents of a document are true. Depending on the jurisdiction, it also can be known as an affidavit or a verification on oath or affirmation. For a jurat, the signer must personally appear before you and sign the document in your presence. You must then administer an oath or affirmation and have the signer speak aloud his or her promise that the statements in the document are true. The choice between an oath or affirmation should be made by the signer.
In some cases, a client may simply need you to administer an oath or affirmation orally, rather than as part of a jurat, affidavit or other written document. The purpose of administering a verbal oath or affirmation is, again, to compel a client to truthfulness. An oath is a solemn pledge to a Supreme Being. An affirmation is a solemn pledge on the individual's personal honor. Again, the choice should be made by the signer.
A Signature Witnessing or Attesting certificate is used to determine that the signature appearing on a document is that of the person appearing before the Notary and named in the document.
