Need a Notary to Notarize

Business Documents


A notary public is an official witness who verifies the identity of someone signing a legal document and ensures that the document is signed willingly. Notarization adds an extra layer of authenticity to a document and makes it more difficult to forge.

Several business documents commonly require notarization. Here are some of the most common:

  • Articles of incorporation: This document establishes a corporation and outlines its basic structure.

  • Operating agreements: This document outlines the rights and responsibilities of the owners and managers of a business.


  • Loan documents: Loan agreements, mortgages, and other loan documents often require notarization.


  • Contracts: Important contracts, such as those involving large sums of money or real estate, may require notarization.


  • Affidavits: Sworn statements used as evidence in court often require notarization.

In addition to the documents listed above, many other business documents may require notarization depending on the specific circumstances. If you are unsure whether a document needs to be notarized, it is always best to consult with an attorney.

Here are some of the things a notary public will do when notarizing a document:

  • Verify the identity of the signer using a valid government-issued ID.

  • Witness the signer signing the document.

  • Ask the signer to swear or affirm that they signed the document willingly and without duress.

  • Complete a notary certificate, which includes the notary's seal and signature.

In the United States, notaries public are commissioned by individual states. The requirements for becoming a notary public vary from state to state, but they typically include passing a background check and taking a training course.
