  • You can find information as to the witnessing documents for the I-9 form on the Department of Homeland Security. I found that out the other day. You, as a Notary, can witness viewing the documents needed, and there is a Notary form you need to print out to do so on that website.

  • You need to contact your state - the rules and process vary from state to state. I am a notary in IN, but I cannot notarize MI documents, for example. There are some general guidelines but you really need to find out what the exact rules are in your state before you do anything.

  • Surprised you became a Notary with no training but I think it is different from state to state. In California, we must undergoe mandatory training and testing every 4 years (I believe ...)

    Do check as BobbieJo286 suggests.

  • They didn't give me any information I call them and they never answer; It just say leave your name and number and well get back to you but I haven't receive any calls. That's why I'm asking for anyone that Is a public notory were did you get your information!!!

  • As far as general knowledge goes, I know you are supposed to have people sign and date the little book they give you when you notorize something. And obviously you have to see them sign whatever it is you're notorizing.

    I am not a notary, but I have to get things notorized for work frequently and that's what our in-house notary does. : )

    Like anonymous said, you should have gotten in-depth info when you became an official notary.
