For something to be offically notarized...

Does it have to be signed in front of the notary or can you sign and then take it to them?

  • I'm a notary and everything must be signed in front of me. I have had cases where people didn't know this, but I just had them re-sign. Also, you must  always have proof of who you are ie: licence, etc unless I know them personally.

  • The notary needs to witness you signing it.

  • Signed in front of the notary. That is the purpose of a notary, to verify that you are the person signing it.

  • It's supposed to be signed in front of the notary, and they are supposed to see your identification.

  • In front of the notary because you have to show ID on who you are and at times you have to provide a finger print depending on where you go for that service.
