Having a document notarized not only plays a large part in everyday legal practices, but also in many other business dealings. In simple terms, a Notary Public is a state approved and licensed individual that serves as an independent witness to the signing of certain legal documents. While having the signature of a Notary Public does not make the document valid per se, the notary signature typically signifies the involved parties’ willingness and competency to be signing said documents.
A Notary will serve as a witness for many types of documents, including:
- Business Documents
- Insurance Release Paperwork
- Loan Documents
One purpose of a notary is to prevent fraud and undue influence in the signing and execution of legal documents. For example, an individual of advanced age may not recognize that he or she is signing a change to their will, and a Notary will recognize such, thereby refusing to witness the signature.
To hire a Notary, you will only have to answer a few questions, make sure all parties have valid identification, and make a convenient appointment for all parties to be present together for the signing of any documents.
