Certification

The Notary Public is a witness to a signature only, no legal advice is allowed by a notary. A Notary Public, by legislation, is strictly prohibited to notarize for a family member.

It is the responsibility of a Notary Public to certify the person or persons signing a document to make sure they are the person stated on the document. Notarization on a document certifies that the person whose signature is entered on the document personally appeared before the notary, established his or her identity, and personally signed the document in the presence of the notary.
