Frequently Asked Questions
Yes! Public notary is just one of the many services NOPL offers for free to the community.
This is dependent on staff scheduling, which is why notary services are by appointment only.
In order to have a document notarized, please attend your session with the following:
- All the people who will sign the document (involved parties)
- A valid, government issued photo ID for each person
- The document without any signatures
Your notary will verify your identities, witness the signing of the document, and notarize it when complete.
While many legal documents must be notarized, having something notarized does not make something legal. Our notaries are there to verify the identities of those involved and witness they are signing the document willingly. A notary public is not an attorney and cannot make something legal or ensure its truthfulness. If you need legal advice, please consult a certified attorney.
