Q: What does a notary public notarize?

A: A notary public notarizes any document in which an originator needs to ensure the integrity of the signer.  A notary public verifies the identity of the signer, and that they are signing knowingly and willingly.  This process helps deter the fraudulent execution of documents.

Q: How does a notary verify the identity of the signer?

A: State laws may vary, but in general, no. For vital records documents such as birth certificates and marriage certificates, the requestor should visit the local agency that holds these documents, such as a local county clerk. There are some limited instances when a notary may certify a copy, but it is best to check with the notary of your state.
